Money might not make the world go around - but it's good to know how to make it and how to manage it! Chicago's Cinema Academy will present "The Money Show" on Thursday, April 18th to our 4th & 5th graders. This fun and fast paced show uses an energetic cast of three to cover the history and theories of money and economies.
The show opens with Aesop's story of the silly Grasshopper and the industrious Ant, then stops and tries to change the end of the story by teaching the Grasshopper about the ways of personal finance. From there, we're off to the races, with the establishment of the principles of supply and demand, the collection of "assets" versus the collection of "things", the principles of Risk and Reward, what "stock markets" are, and how everyone can use the funds they have available to make themselves into sturdy financial "ants" rather than hapless "grasshoppers."
