Product Description
I have developed a simple, low-to-no-tech method to turn your entire class (yes, all year!) into a fully-functioning and simple economy that can function as a motivational and classroom management tool!

Students earn wages in many different ways as a part of the regular class, and save, trade, invest, or purchase in-class goods. Students learn to manage money, while also having fun in the classroom. They will grapple with taxes, inflation, and limitations on their investments, just as they would in real life. While it does not include all bureaucratic complexities of the economy, it certainly teaches them the basics of earning and handling money. While it is designed for an Economics class, it is a life-long tool that can be utilized in ANY class (I even use it in my U.S. History classes)!

The Bundle Includes:
-Reusable Excel file to track student wages, spending, and investment
-Detailed video tutorial on how to use the program
-PDF guide on all aspects of the game

The Game Includes:
-Students earning, saving, investing, and spending digital classroom money
-Student exposure to Certificate of Deposits, Treasury Bonds, stocks, and taxes
-A year-long money system that acts as both an incentive and classroom management tool
-Fun for the students and teacher alike

BONUS: Explanations of my favorite in-class games as a part of the course and its economy included in the bundle
