economics to lower grades

I took a class several years ago called Mini Society. Kids learned about currency, made currency for our class, got to "earn" money (or lose it), then had to create and sell a product. We had a simulated "market" day where they got to shop and buy their class members' products using this fake currency they'd earned. Overall, it was a great lesson on economics that was truly hands-on rather than theory-based.
