This activity uses the classic board game of monopoly to gently introduce students to a variety of economic ideas (summarised below):
- Redistribution of assets
The resource includes:
13 page Powerpoint activity (not notes, a fun game)
1 page explanatory notes
2 pages of reflective questions
2 pages of suggested solutions to the questions
I have tested this activity with my students and it is always a fun and enjoyable activity that really makes students think about their economic decisions.
This task is a great way to get students engaged in the fascinating world of economics.
