Goal

Teach second graders about economics, needs, wants and even budgeting within a token economy classroom year long project 

 

What will be done with my students

We are asking for the grant money to teach our classes about economics. We have created a Desk Pet token economy program and plan to expand our program. The desk pets are small animal erasers that the students purchase with earnings they receive from class. Along with desk pets the students can also purchase houses, and other items for their pet. Our students will learn about budgeting, paying bills and purchasing needs for their desk pets. There are numerous books about money and working with primary students on needs verse wants which will also be part of our program. Currently, we use tickets for our currency and want to create a currency aligned with real dollar amounts to better educate our student about finances.  

 

Benefits to my students

Student will work on state standards and life skills in a playful reward based project. They will read about finance and explore currency while working on their reading, writing and math skill at all ability levels. 

 

Describe the Students
