This simulation lesson will assist students studying the factors that affect supply of a product in Economics. Designed for year 12 students for their A-Level course but could work well at GCSE level.
Students are put in the position of fishermen/women and their objective is to make as much money as they can from creating fish. The economic situation changes regularly, so students may change their approach during the lesson.
After the fun and excitement, students complete an evaluation sheet that relates the practical activity they have just been doing to the fundamental topic of demand and supply- getting students to draw clear diagrams with written explanation of what's happened in each situation. This also allows for an excellent class discussion.
Everything required to run the lesson is included - you just need some scrap paper, scissors, pencils, and rulers. It is written to last an hour, but can be adapted, or the discussion can be conducted as a follow-up in the next lesson.
This presentation contains a whole lesson!
Specifically this lesson is for teaching ... on supply and factors that influence supply and what happens when the supply curves shifts and its relationship to demand.
I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson, specifically slides to prompt/force myself to ask those key questions at the right moments, slides to explain key words with short and easy explanations, prompts for me the teacher when to use the different activities, games, handouts, articles etc... that make the lesson up as well. All the teaching presentations, include starters and plenaries, normally a quick discussion, but sometimes something else.
All the additional worksheets etc... that are prompted in the presentations should be located in the free section under handouts. If you struggle to find a handout that is obviously part of the lesson, then please ask and I can get it uploaded again or emailed across directly.
All the lessons have been taught many times, and have been molded to fit a lesson and to cover the curriculum, as well as provide excellent impact and progress. These resources have helped me as a teacher to be very organised, structured and stress free... knowing it is all there!
Not really for International Primary Curriculum, but no other general Topic or Cross-curricular area. However they are ideal for supply teachers on short-term or fill-in lessons using a variety of subjects. Read notes under slides first and then play as 'View Powerpoint ' to see it interactively in the class
