Economics Express

Recommended for Kindergarten-2nd Grade

This program offers students a better understanding of key economic concepts including needs and wants, goods and services, and producers and consumers. They will see these concepts in action by participating in role play games. In a mini-economy simulation students will produce goods or services to be sold and then buy goods or services as consumers. Come learn the basics of financial literacy in Economics Express!

Students will leave the program with a picture of their very own good or service created for the simulation.
