Workshop Description: K-8 Grade Teachers:

The Purdue Center for Economic Education will be hosting The Classroom Mini-Economy workshop for K-8 grade teachers. The Mini-Economy is a form of economics instruction in which students participate in a classroom economy in order to simulate real world economic activity. Through a Mini-Economy, your students will learn important economic concepts found in Indiana Social Studies Standards such as scarcity, opportunity cost, productivity, supply and demand, trade, profit, and inflation. In addition, students learn about teamwork, money management, entrepreneurship, and decision-making as they participate in their own very real economic system.

The workshop will be held on September 21, 2017 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at Mayflower Mill Elementary School, Lafayette, IN. There is no charge to participate in the workshop, but you must register by September 18.
