Build your students' comprehension of the complexities of the foreign exchange market with this engaging and multi-faceted activity!
This activity includes:
1) This "The Foreign Exchange Market" Activity includes 6 parts. It begins with a colorful graphic organizer that asks your students to define foreign exchange demand and explain the factors that contribute to the inverse relationship between exchange rates and currency demanded. Next, students will be asked to define foreign exchange supply and explain the factors that contribute to the positive relationship between exchange rates and currency supplied. Next, students will be asked to identify the 4 components of foreign exchange supply and demand and will critically think as to how several factors can influence the foreign exchange market. Finally, students will use their knowledge to analyze 12 foreign exchange markets and changes in currency supply and demand that will generate changes in exchange rates. Students will graph the change, identify the change to the value of the currency being analyzed, and then investigate how certain economic indicators will be effected.
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.
