Curriculum Project

KidsEcon Posters


Don’t you love when you have an answer every time a student says “When am I going to use this in real life?” For over sixty-seven years, the Indiana Council for Economic Education has been creating teaching resources that let teachers do just that for basic economics principles. Economics is part of our everyday lives. Regardless of how intimidating it can be, we think every student should be financially literate.

KidsEcon Posters© was created through a curriculum project at Purdue University as a resource for teachers to show even the simplest of economic principles to their students. The project started with 22 core posters with basic ideas, and since we’ve added posters and connections to literature and even a video series that bring alive economics and personal finance principles and give students a framework for decision making.  We want to give teachers across the nation every opportunity they deserve to help make finance and economics accessible to students of all ages.
