How I Use It
I have used this product in my Civics classes it has some very good video lessons that get down to the kids level. I will admit the a couple of the videos can be a little off for some more advanced students but even they get a kick out of some of the images and representations. Bizkids can be used for a topic or unit approach and the extra resources are good.
My Take
Overall this project is quite good as a learning tool the teacher can pick and choose what videos and resources they want to use based on what they are teaching in economics or related fields. There are plenty of good resources to use for a variety of grade level and cognitive ability. I would recommend you take a close look at this product.
