(Self-Paced) Elementary Economics Book Fair

August 16, 2022

August 16 – September 11
Time commitment: 45 – 90 minutes/week for 3 weeks

Elementary educators are charged with teaching their students literacy skills and economic principles – why not combine the two for maximum engagement? This self-paced professional development program will give K-5 educators an opportunity to explore six children’s books accompanied by lesson plans that help students understand economic and personal finance concepts.

Elementary educators who complete all program requirements (at least 3 self-paced 45-minute modules and a survey) will receive two books of their choice. Participants will also receive a certificate of professional development (up to 4.5 hours).

Someone Builds the Dream (K-2)
Sheep in a Shop (K-2)
Money Monsters Start Their Own Business (3-5)
