Students will Play the Cool Math Coffee Shop Game (free website) to portray the 3 types of economic systems- Command Economy, Market Economy, and Mixed Economy. The command economy limits students from changing the recipe and price. The Market has absolute freedom, and the Mixed has a price ceiling and max amount of Milk that can be used, but otherwise the decision is theirs. Included in this are directions and 3 pages of spreadsheets/worksheets for students to fill in.
This game takes about 2 periods and is best completed with a partner. One student clicks through the computer and the other records. Challenge your class to sell the most each round. Hands down one of the most competitive fun activities in Economics!
