This activity, which will take place over several days, will have the students participating in a simulation of a market economy. Knowing that the factors of production are natural, human and capital, half the class will represent households that provide these resources (e.g., may be selling grain, or offering to take a job, or investing money). The other half of the class will represent the businesses that, with a set amount of money, will need to purchase the resources. Of course, the households want to get the most money for their resources, while the businesses would like to pay the least possible. Consequently, the businesses will create their products with their resources, and attempt to sell them back to the consumers i.e. the households. And so, the economic circle is born.
