A high-energy cast use the fable of the Grasshopper and the Ant to help explain money and finance in a way your kids will totally get!

We start with the story of The Grasshopper and The Ant, the former a spendthrift who thought it'd be summer forever, and the latter the industrious worker and saver. Winter comes, and the Grasshopper learns a hard, cold lesson.

But Wait! Let's go back and try to rewrite the ending, by teaching the Grasshopper everything he needs to know about how to survive, by working smarter, saving more, spending wisely, and investing the rest. We'll cover supply and demand, how currency, banks and markets work, career and college choices, and how anyone can make themselves into sturdy financial "ants" rather than hapless "grasshoppers."

Fiscally sound fun for students grades 3-8, and a great add-on to your economics modules. Works with the Illinois Board of Education standards for Economics Education for middle-elementary students.
