It’s time for something fun!
Please join PCEE for a Playful Economics workshop, led by elementary teacher Gina Boyd, PCEE’s Teacher Advocate.

In this live Zoom workshop we will explore strategies for teaching economics to elementary school students using creativity – and play dough! 

Playful Economics teaches basic economic concepts like scarcity and opportunity cost to children through the use of play dough. For a preview, here is an 11-minute Council of Economic Education video of children working through a Playful Economics unit on opportunity cost.
