Economics Games


In an earlier post I talked about the Social Studies page on my website that I had originally designed for native or very advanced English speakers.  In that post I highlighted some sections on that page that would probably be accessible to English Language Learners.

When we finished up doing a unit on Jobs and Money in my Economics class for English Language Learners (a mix of high-beginners and intermediates) in June I showed the students that page’s section on Economics.  That category has a mix of economics-related games.

They loved it, and had little trouble finding activities they could easily access.  Not only did they have fun, but they also learned a lot.

You might want to check them out to see if your students might have a similar experience.
