Teachers will learn how they can teach many economic concepts using modeling clay. Modeling clay can be used to illustrate economic concepts such as goods and services, production, scarcity, opportunity costs, trade, specialization, supply and demand, and more. Students will have a blast using these lessons in your classroom!

Each workshop attendee will receive activity-oriented lessons spanning from elementary to middle school civics & economics.  In addition to classroom ready lessons, the workshop will include snacks and door prizes.
