Teaching with Monopoly 2.0 is here!!!!

Don't teach about mortgages and income inequality the boring way - play with Monopoly instead! Students will be much more likely to understand the information as well as remember key economic vocabulary. This is perfect for those days right before a long break, to shake things up when the winter blues hit, or if you've already played once, if you are going to be out for a few days, let the substitute run a Monopoly session.

An introduction to important terms is included along with end-of-game summaries for students and class discussion prompts to help you get everything from this unique lesson. (This comes with the original presentation and a new look!)

Yes, they are really playing Monopoly. They are rolling the dice, buying properties, trying to get a monopoly, all while avoiding bankruptcy. But the four different scenarios give them different learning objectives during gameplay. Debt obligation or income inequality are two additional factors they have to consider while strategizing to win.


What's Included in 2.0:

  • FOUR new game scenarios
  • Matching summaries
  • New look original resource

What's Included in the Original:

  • PowerPoint with important terms, history of Monopoly, and symbolism
  • Teacher Guide
  • Printable Game Rules
  • Discussion Prompts
  • FOUR game scenarios

Let the fun begin!

**NOTE** You must purchase at least one full Monopoly game to use this lesson. This product does NOT include a printable game version. I would suggest you purchase several Monopoly games from an authorized marketplace to use this product effectively.
