Web Site of the Week: EconEdLink

While the homepage of EconEdLink encourages users to sign up for free unlimited access, there is plenty available on this economics and personal finance website without the creation of an account. Here educators will find such relevant lesson plans as “Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday,” a story for kindergarteners, first graders, and second graders about a boy who receives a dollar from his grandparents. Though he plans to save the money, gradually he spends every penny. The story is chock-full of pecuniary precepts, as well as excellent math skills. Other lessons help high school students examine how they will pay for college, learn about the history of Medicare, and become familiar with the Federal Reserve system. With dozens of lesson plans available, educators interested in teaching everyday economics to their students will find much to inspire on this well organized site. [CNH]
