Anyone have any good ideas for teaching about taxes or doing a cost benefit analysis? I need something interactive for the kids to do. We are bored stuff with economics!

Try Playdough Economics

This is the text. It is online now. Even if they do not have a lesson for the concept you need to teach do some reading. You will get the jest of how it allows students to use the play dough to learn. Then you can create your own hands on lesson(s) for the concept(s) you need to teach. Hope that makes sense.

I have only used a few of the lessons for third grade and loved them. So did the students. The play dough made very dry lessons more enjoyable.

I bought a couple of the 12 pack miniature sets of play dough tubs. It was just enough for each child. I made sure the lids were on well and then bagged them in zip lock baggies. They lasted two years.
