Unit 1. Fundamentals of Economics and Financial Literacy

The course is developed for children 6-13 years old.
As a part of this unit your child will learn the basics of economics: the mechanisms of market relations, need for income, what money is and why it’s necessary, the origins of finances and global currencies.

While creating this course, we aimed to help children get started in finances and understand basic laws of economics in order to increase financial literacy. This unit is executed in an interactive game format, with engaging video and audio materials, useful tasks, and simple, easy-to-follow explanations and examples.

The unit “Fundamentals of economics and financial literacy” is the first level of our program and it’s suitable for children who haven’t previously dealt with the topic of finances it all or have limited knowledge.

After completing this unit, among other things, your child will be able to determine the value of a currency, to explain a wide range of financial terms including, for example, inflation or supply and demand and to present a structured overall knowledge of finances.
