Add Interest to Economics and Social Studies
The site of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) doesn't sound very exciting, but within are a few cool finds for teachers - who knew?
A nice middle school resource I like is a game called Where in the World and What in the World is Money? The game includes some basic economic and monetary concepts, as well as incorporating history.
For high school students Monetary Mania is a game in which students can test their knowledge of economic theories.
Beyond these games, teachers will find complete sets of pretty quality lesson plans and other interactives for teaching economics/social studies to middle school and high school students.
