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.
Participants will receive a number of engaging, classroom ready lessons and activities for grades 3 through middle school. The institute also identifies performance assessments for grade 3.
Participants who attend the entire institute and successfully pass a test will be acknowledged as VCEE Certified Economic Educator: Mini-Economy.
