The Classroom Mini-Economy

The Classroom Mini-Economy is a play money economics curriculum that many K-8 teachers have used over the years. In it, students have jobs, run banks and insurance companies, shop at a store or auction, rent desks, etc. Teachers use it to teach basic economics and also to apply basic skills learned in other subject areas, especially math and language arts. ICEE provides A to Z training to teachers in how to implement a Mini-Economy. There are periodic training programs or specific training can be requested.
