Product Description
Trading Up World Economy Simulation
Appropriate for grades 4-7 & Homeschool


PURPOSE:
This activity will take your students through a process of trading for items needed to survive. Each student becomes a producer of items and is given 4 cards that list out the details. They will then have to trade for the items they need in 4 distinct categories. Students realize that they need each other to survive and sometimes you have to take a trade that doesn’t benefit you to survive.

WHAT’S INCLUDED:
This product contains:
         ☆How-to page with game modifications
         ☆4 pages of resource trading cards
         ☆2 page student handout with reflection questions

STORY:
I have always been interested in interactive class simulations that have connections to how the world works. I have had a world trade unit that I always start off with using this activity because it explores trade between countries and interdependence. This activity is also one of the student’s favorites for the year and brings up plenty of great conversation. You could use it for something as simple as learning to share or to discuss bigger world economy issues.

POSSIBLE EXTENSIONS:
Possible extensions are included in the file!

MATERIALS/PRE-REQS:
Besides this file, you may require:
         ☆Nothing!
