This activity is the perfect tool you need to guide your students toward a deeper comprehension of production possibilities curves!
This activity includes:
1) This "Production Possibilities Curves" Activity includes 4 parts. It begins with a colorful graphic organizer that asks your students to plot production possibility combinations and create a production possibilities curve. Next, students will apply what they've learned to identify what a production possibilities curve can show us, and will answer questions about productive efficiency and inefficiency and where to find it on the PPC. Next, students will be asked to calculate opportunity costs of production using several production possibilities curves provided. Finally, students will interpret changes in economic conditions and show how those changes affect production capacities by graphing shifts in several production possibilities curves provided.
This activity can be used in many different ways in the classroom. Students can work independently, in pairs or this activity can be used as a jigsaw in order to facilitate a class wide discussion about the topics discussed in the activity.
2) A detailed answer key to the lesson activity to save you time and help guide student comprehension.
This activity can also be found in a bundle paired with a PowerPoint, Keynote and PDF version of a fully customizable lecture found here:
