This power point contains two simulations to use in your classroom when teaching Production Possibilities Curves and Indifference Curves. They only about 5-10 minutes for the students to do, but you can use the principles they show for the entire unit!
The PPC simulation will require about 600 popsicle sticks
And the Marginal Rate of Substitution simulation will require some chocolate and milk.
These tie in wonderfully with my lesson on PPC, Budget Lines and Utility Curves found here:
