During this one hour session, I presented techniques for teaching Economic principles to elementary school children to an Economics for the Citizen class on the George Mason University campus that is predominately made up on elementary education majors.  During this presentation, I introduced the students to the GMU Center for Economic Education, introduced them for top resources in lesson design and implementation, and demonstrated a lesson using a Dr. Seuss book to teach the economic way of thinking and the PACED decision making model.

The students will complete an assignment for Dr. Jason Dunick where they will design and implement a learning activity that will be targeted to elementary aged children explaining an assigned key concept.
