Product Description
In this dynamic class activity, students will experience firsthand the effects of supply and demand described in the marketplace of John Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath." Just as too many families were forced to sell their goods at heartbreaking prices before leaving home in search of a better life, students are set-up to feel the frustrations of excess supply with limited demand in this negotiation simulation. The simulation includes teacher instructions, 13 post-activity discussion questions, 3 seller profiles with cut-out goods for trading, and 3 buyer profiles with fake money for trading. This activity is certain to get students out of their seats, engaged in negotiating, and connecting with the pains of families described in this classic novel!
