How I Use It
I use this website as a reinforcement tool for my entrepreneurship class. The game lets you choose your character and then asks you a series of questions related to economics. As students work through the game they will watch videos that teach them about economics.
My Take
This probably works best for middle school students, but I use it at the high school level. It provides an interactive way to learn more about economics which is a pretty dry subject. Students gained a better understanding of economics and had a little fun at the same time.
