About This Activity

Almost every aspect of our lives has economic implications - which means the study of economics should be both relevant and fun! Have you ever wondered how the dollar got its name? Or why seashells can't be used like "real money"? Why were your grandparents able to buy their first house for $10,000, while that same house could cost you $250,000 or more to buy today? Why does an iphone 11 cost nearly $1000 while that old flip phone is about $20? Want to know how banks - and companies - make money? What if money actually became worthless? What would you do and how would you provide for yourself and your family? What are taxes and why do they matter? And what's the big deal with how the government spends money? Introduction to Economics will present the foundational concepts, major ideologies and practical topics of the field of micro and macro economics through a combination of traditional textbook, fictional examples, independent projects and current events. Class lectures are fun, interactive discussions, and homework, while rigorous, includes textbook assignments, supplemental reading, and assorted video clips (cleaned up if necessary!) of movie and TV programs that demonstrate economic concepts in a way that make topics come alive. Suggested grade level 10-12.
