This is an activity meant to be used in a high school business or marketing course. I use this with my Intro to Business and Marketing students when we are learning about the factors of production. This could be adapted to use in other business/economic classes. This activity has students classify different resources by what factor of production they are for four different types of businesses. Students can work individually or with a partner to design their poster. Some answers can get tricky as some tiles could be used in more than business, so students have the opportunity to rationalize where they place the resource and then justify their answer. Materials needed are listed on the instruction sheet for assignment.
My aim in creating this was for students to gauge that students can classify resources used in common businesses based on the four factors of production. Class periods at my school are 90 minutes, and this assignment took half a class period for students to complete working individually.
