EconEdLink just published a new lesson with a new interactive. This interactive is a set of models used in other lessons as well and it is the first time we've used it. Please let us know what you think!
I had found the new interactive Budget Odyssey featured on the In the Classroom web site for educators using Thinkfinity.org. I think it is especially good for middle school students because it requires them to think about their spending and helps them understand budget deficits and surpluses. I will be sharing this with the teachers who are participating in my Thinkfinity training session next week.
It's great that EconEdLink is adding more interactives because the hands-on activities really motivate students and focus their attention well. Thanks for a another great resource!
