PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Challenge students to put key economic skills to the test in this hands on, engaging activity! Students will create a budget, analyze available factors of production, and perform an actual work task to generate a profit. This simulation utilizes common materials (toothpicks, cookies, paperclips, water) to create a realistic situation for students to work through. This is an all time favorite activity in my intermediate social studies class! Includes directions, budget sheet, activity worksheet, work mat, problem cards, and a work mat!
