Here is an introductory activity to get students thinking about scarcity and the choices they make. It uses the IPod Touch as an example and is a visual way to get students to understand the concept of scarcity. This was used in my 12th grade Economics class as a SMART Board activity. Being that the IPod Touch was the example, the students were engaged in the activity and really enjoyed it. I used this for my special needs students so they can visualize the concept of scarcity.
