Class-wide Business Scenario & Survival Game! - Economics

Product Description

Updated for the 2019-2020 year with Google Drive access!

The project is part of  a new approach that I have found, after several years of teaching the class, most-effectively impresses the concepts & information on students, and engages them in economic games, scenarios, and teaches them to apply the skills in real life.  It is also an incredibly fun and engaging competition in which students experience real-life market behaviors and circumstances!

Students are given a set amount of financial capital and have to distribute that capital into various departments within their company. They are then given situations that can negatively or positive impact their company, as well as managing profits or losses for the year. The impact of the various situations is impacted by how they distributed their capital to strengthen or weaken certain departments, giving them a certain degree of influence on their fate! After 5 years (rounds), we see which businesses survived and which failed!

The files provide all necessary materials that are ready to print and go!

Bundle includes the following:

  • Complete set of Teacher and Student Instructions, along with digital hyperlinks and explanations of each step & topic
  • Steps to distribute their financial capital
  • Descriptions on the roles of each department
  • A complete set of negative & positive scenario card
  • Student packets that encompass all 5 years (rounds)
  • Activity is ready to print and go!
