Do you need a fantastic activity that provides your students with plenty of graphing practice with inflationary and recessionary gaps? This activity is the perfect tool you need to guide your students toward a deeper comprehension of inflationary and recessionary GDP gaps!
This activity includes:
1) This "Inflationary and Recessionary Gaps" Activity provides your students with ELEVEN different aggregate economic graphs that they can use to practice principles taught in your classroom! Your students are asked to use their knowledge to analyze each aggregate economy listed, and determine changes in aggregate supply and demand that will open GDP gaps. Students will graph the change, identify the gap opened, and then investigate how certain economic indicators will be effected, including price level, Real GDP, the unemployment rate, standard of living, income and consumption levels, and net exports.
You can use this activity on its own, or in conjunction with our Aggregate Equilibrium Activity:
