The Center for Economic Education at UMW and George Mason University are introducing a program called “Mini-Economy: Creating A Memorable Classroom Experience” This event will be held on the University of Mary Washington Stafford Campus. Registration is free of charge and this event is open to all 3rd through middle school educators.
The Mini-Economy is an experience-based program used to teach entrepreneurship, economics, and government. Students immerse themselves in a classroom economy: applying for jobs, running businesses, paying taxes, making investments. Your students will master essential economic principles while getting cross-curricular exposure to math, reading, and writing. On top of invaluable teamwork and negotiation skills, students learn their role in the global marketplace.
