Start your students off right by building their comprehension of aggregate demand with this engaging and multi-faceted activity!
This activity includes:
1) This "Aggregate Demand" Activity includes 4 parts. It begins with a colorful graphic organizer that asks your students to define aggregate demand and explain the factors that contribute to the inverse relationship between price level and real GDP output demanded. Next, students will use data and graphs provided to calculate the change in real GDP output demanded as price level changes, leading to a downward-sloping AD curve. Next, students will be asked to identify the 4 components of aggregate demand and will critically think as to how several factors can influence aggregate demand. Finally, students will use their knowledge and a collection of data provided to analyze changes in the components of aggregate demand, predict the effects of those changes, and then graph the changes on an aggregate demand graph provided.
This activity can be used in many different ways in the classroom. Students can work independently, in pairs, or this activity can be used as a jigsaw in order to facilitate a class-wide discussion about the topics discussed in the activity.
2) A detailed answer key to the lesson activity to save you time and help guide student comprehension.
