The Mini-Economy is an experienced-based program used to teach entrepreneurship, economics and government. Students immerse themselves in a classroom economy: applying for jobs, running businesses, paying taxes, making investments. Your students will master essential economics principles while getting cross-curricular exposure to math, reading and writing. On top of invaluable teamwork and negotiation skills, students learn their role in the global marketplace. New for 2015: training and resources for the Mini-Economy Portfolio Assessment. These easy-to-use activities directly assess 3rd grade SOL knowledge, while building toward a project goal; the creation of a flourishing classroom business.
