This simulation is an interactive way to introduce students to key economic principles like incentives, producers, consumers, scarcity, price, and demand. This activity involves the entire classroom by having students take on the role of producers and consumers. Each student becomes an independent economic agent seeking to satisfy their different self-interest.  The simulation requires very little preparation and all materials can be found in your own classroom. It is recommended that this activity be used as an introduction to economics during the first unit. Included in this resource are:
