IDEAS FOR VIDEOS

This Biz Kid$ Video can be used with any children’s book that focuses on buying and selling or entrepreneurship. Profile:
3rd Grade Market Day
 It is a video about 3rd grade students who created a market day and sold goods and services to 2nd graders in their school. Fancy Nancy and the Fabulous Fashion Boutique is an excellent choice to use with this video. In this story, Fancy Nancy becomes an entrepreneur and learns how to make money by selling goods. She also learns about bartering for scarce goods. I would use the Market Day Biz Kidz video to set a context for Fancy Nancy. Then, use the Finding Fabulous Financial Literacy With Fancy Nancy lesson plan on ReadWriteThink.
