"Economics is Everywhere" provides teachers in grades 4, 5, 7 and 8 (can be adapted for grades K-3 & 6) with lesson plans and materials that integrate economic, geography, and history standards. Created in 2019, lessons were designed to support teachers to help students develop knowledge of the world through disciplinary inquiry and understand how economic reasoning connects to their day-to-day lives.
