Game-like fun meets higher order thinking with this Monopoly simulation for economic systems. Students will use the original Monopoly rules to play
and determine that it most closely resembles a capitalist society. Next, work together as a class to develop a new set of rules to represent a socialist economy. Finally, students will develop their own rules to represent a communist economy. Students will answer higher order questions as they run the simulation. The worksheet includes 14 open ended questions on economic systems that encourage students to cite evidence for their answers. Also included in the file is an answer key.
This simulation promotes modeling (I do, We do, You do) and encourages students to investigate and think outside of the box. My students love getting to play Monopoly in class. It's a fun way to teach students to love learning. Enjoy!
***Please note that this file does NOT include the Monopoly board games. A class set of games must be purchased separately.
