+ Teacher's Corner
This page was designed to teach children about economics. We chose the topic of economics because there is a very small number of sites on the web that has a focus on economics, let alone teaching it so a kid can understand it. We wanted to make learning economics an interesting and fun process. This home page covers the following areas:
The host for this interactive journey is Mega Money, a lovable dollar sign. With his horse, Bill, and his dog, Dollar, Mega Money teaches the basics of economics. Instead of a single teaching environment, Mega Money takes kids to a farm, museum, factory, and more. Every topic has its own environment. For instance, there is an opportunity cost shop, producer vs. consumer factory, goods and services farm, etc. At the end of each lesson, there is either a pop quiz or a game to help kids understand it better.
For your convenience, we have written some worksheets. There is a
worksheet for each topic. All you have to do is print out one and xerox
as many copies as you need.
We chose the topic of economics because there is a very small number of sites on the web that focus on economics, let alone teaching it so kids can understand it. We did find some excellent sites about economics, though. Visit the following sites for additional economics information.
