Learn how to use children’s literature to teach math and economics to enhance learning, promote critical thinking, and build problem solving skills.  Math and economics concepts become understandable when your students can make connections with these concepts in an interesting story.
This workshop features a list of 30 children’s books (K-3) compiled by GMU and JMU Centers for Economic Education. The content in these books reinforces Virginia’s K-3 Mathematics SOL and economics concepts in Social Science SOL. This interactive workshop includes classroom ready lessons and door prizes.
