Lesson Excerpt:

Introduction:

At this point, students have bought into the idea of having their own society and their own currency.  MoneyInstructor-Bucks have value because students have seen that A) they will have to earn it and B) they will be able to spend it. 

Now, your students will decide on several part-time jobs that they will do so that they can begin earning MoneyInstructor-Bucks.  The part-time jobs will allow your students to begin to participate in the economy just like the way that real world part-time jobs such as babysitting, mowing lawns, and walking dogs give young people a chance to gain economic experience.
