In this game, students will take the role of either an oil company or a consumer, with companies producing oil and consumers buying it for the lowest possible price on the market. Companies will vary in size, with the largest company having several advantages. Students will compete against each other in the market, trying to find ways to decrease production costs and will even having the ability to initiate buyouts. The game works great for U.S. History or economics.
The document will include the two pages of rules for students (one of the them is in the preview). Also included will be student ledgers for both the oil companies and consumers, pictures that can be used for tokens, a brief teacher guide for the game, and a follow-up worksheet for students to reflect on the game.
I take pride in creating in-depth games that are not only enjoyable, but also that serve to educate students about key historical content. I always appreciate feedback and new ideas.
