Your students will love watching excerpts from the Raising Hope episode entitled Burt Bucks. These questions help students put context to difficult economic ideas such as inflation and gives background on why economies transition from traditional economies to economies with a money system.
This activity includes a PowerPoint with questions and an answer key. Note: The video is not included with this purchase, but can be purchased from iTunes for $.99 at the time of this posting. There is also a youtube link to it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjXWfCkkScE. I strongly encourage teacher previewing of the video to fast forward or edit parts that are not related to Economics.
