Economics Stations Activity - Economic Systems *Print & Go Prep*

Looking for a fun way to get your students talking, moving, and collaborating? Look no further!

This Station Activity will get your students moving while helping them review content that they’ve learned throughout the unit.

How the Lesson Works:

★ This lesson is made up of six stations that will allow your students to discuss the following topics:

Station 1 - Two Truths and a Lie (Vocabulary Review)
Station 2 - Analyze the Issues (Reading an Article about Presidential Opinions on Money & Giving an Agree/Disagree Opinion)
Station 3 - Connect the Dots (Connecting the Concept of Scarcity to Personal Lives)
Station 4 - Jot It Down (Watch a Video and Give Opinions on AEIOU Chart)
Station 5 - What’s the Difference (Identifying the Differences Between Socialism and Communism)
Station 6 - What’s Your Thought? (Determining Pros and Cons of Different Types of Economies)
★ This activity can be completed by individual students or by teams of students with one answer sheet.

★ The stations are designed to be completed in ten minutes. The entire lesson will take sixty minutes to complete.

★ Many of the stations involve writing opinions rather than facts, so there is not always necessarily a correct or incorrect answer. I’ve included a sample answer sheet to give you an idea of how students can respond to these prompts.

★ This purchase includes the six station cards, supplemental files for three of the stations, a student answer sheet, a sample completed answer sheet, a Notes for Teachers document explaining each station with tips and tricks.

★ All files come in a PDF format.

Required Materials:

★ Two of the stations require devices for watching videos on YouTube. Any device with an internet connection will work.
