Resource was created to introduce lower secondary students to the economy. The activity involves giving each student a card with a unique “economic situation” on it. Students must read through their situation and determine whether they are part of a weak and struggling economy, or whether they are part of a strong and thriving economy. In my classroom we had a divided section on the whiteboard and students had to sort themselves into either one of the catergories. They then had to explain their reasoning and we had a discussion afterwards. This was used in a Year 8 Geography class but can be used throughout a variety of subjects. Would be best used as an introductory excercise.
