We use Mini Society as a way to teach our Economic concepts. If you are not familiar with Mini Society, it's basically a project to walk the kids through the concepts of a society, start a business, earn money, pay taxes, sell products, and buy others' products. It's FUN, exciting, and a great learning model.
