Best Economics Websites and Apps for Students
For social studies, few topics are as essential, or as difficult to get a grip on, as economics. These games and sites help break down how the U.S. economy -- and its budgets -- work. There's a heavy emphasis on systems thinking, showing students that economics affects just about everything (for better and worse) from policy to people. On this list you'll find videos that break down the most difficult concepts, games that feature tough ethical decisions, and lessons that highlight how the economy is connected to poverty and social justice.
