This is a highly entertaining video, appropriate for upper elementary and middle school grades. A great way to introduce children to otherwise complex economic ideas.
My students thoroughly enjoyed this video. They commented that it was very interesting AND they learned something too! To hear that from students just reinforced my own opinion of the video's effectiveness.

I particularly liked the segment and accompanying materials for supply and demand. This concept can often be complicated for high school students; these materials have simplified the concept and made supply and demand more accessible for my students.
I think we need to do a better job of teaching our kids about economics. This DVD was an excellent tool.
I love this video. It goes very well with our unit on early humans and how the Agricultural Revolution changed everything drastically by allowing for specialization of jobs. I am so glad that another teacher introduced this video to me.
