I second the recommendation of FTE workshops (fte.org) I have done the Economics for Leaders, Economic Forces in US History, along with various local workshops, and they are ALL outstanding! They provide simulations and teaching tactics using an "economic thinking" point of view that my students understand and are motivated to get involved with.

It may be a bit advanced in some areas, but I have found that the Classroom Experinomics website (www.marietta.edu/~delemeeg/expernom.html) to have some great things to do. I use the dollar-bill game early on in the year and my kids love it.
Plus, the Foundation for Teaching Economics has some great stuff, particularly their simulations from the Economics for Leaders workshop. If anyone can attend their workshops, I really recommend them highly.
