Remember when you had to choose between buying that new game or going to the movies with friends because you did not have enough money? That was an economic decision! In this interactive class you’ll learn & experience how transactions (goods and services) work, opportunity cost, government projects’s decisions, and more!
You’ll create stories where you buy and trade your way to economic success. Will you make your fortune or lose it all?

Students will explore these topics by contextualizing learning through the development of narratives that include the key concepts of economics. In all classes, students will practice 21st-century skills: communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. Students will create stories and learning games with role-play, simulate real or imaginary circumstances, present projects to peers, and reflect on lessons learned.
