Buyer Seller Business Enterprise Game
MrBusinessAndITMrBusinessAndIT

Buyer Seller Business Enterprise Game

(0)
**Great way to end the year** This is a unique game where students are split into two halves: Sellers - these students have set amounts of stock that they need to sell for the best price possible. Buyers - these students have set amounts of items that they need to buy within a budget. The game runs over three rounds, to give students the opportunity to reflect and change their approach. It teaches them about supply and demand as well as communication and negotiation skills. It will last a full lesson if the entrepreneurial skills worksheet is used and class discussion is held at the end to reflect on what happened and why. There is then the creating a mobile phone activity to use - so if done properly with class discussion there is enough for two hours. The buying/selling game is a real gem, students love it and its great for active/creative learning. I used it at a job interview and it went down very well.
