Product Description


Striker Jones doesn't need a magnifying glass or fingerprint kit to solve the crime-- and neither will your students! Written for children ages 7-10, Striker will teach your students basic economics without them even knowing it, including such concepts as supply and demand, mutually beneficial trade, and competition. The stories are not packed with economic jargon, but they will subtly convey economic concepts that form the basis for a lifetime of good decision-making. Let your class follow along with Striker as he solves ten mysteries that any child could face. Then use the lesson plans included in the Teacher's Companion to draw out the explicit economics lessons. Lesson plans include vocabulary, discussion topics, fun classroom activities, and assignments. 

"'Striker Jones' is a thoughtful delve into economics and short fiction, a top pick for younger readers."

- Midwest Book Review Bookwatch, November 2011

"Striker Jones is an excellent text for older elementary students beginning to grasp more and more complicated economic concepts. Through its easy flowing narrative with lots of conversational dialogue, children will learn to see that economics affect their daily life far more than they realized!"

- Rutgers University Project on Children and Economics

Spiral-bound Teachers Companion contains lesson plans and vocabulary, to go with Striker Jones: Elementary Economics for Elementary Detectives.
