. now if someone will just try it on elementary.

HOW TO:1. START:I start by having the desks in a circle. Let us assume our class has 12 students. I divide the class into 6 pairs. Each pair will represent one country. There are 6 countries, each country has their own natural resource, and they are as follows. China .GOLDSaudi Arabia .OILRussia .WEAPONSJapan ..ELECTRONICSAmerica .LUMBERBrazil......................COFFEE2. Assigning Countries.:There are a lot of ways you can do this. You can just let them pick or my method. I have each country labeled on a strip of paper. I hold the paper and they pull a strip out, and that is their random country. 3. Resources:After dolling out countries tell the students about each of their resources, and then tell them how much each one is worth. I say that Oil is worth $500 per unit. Then I give Saudi Arabia their 4 Oil units and ask the class how much Saudi A. has total, and write it on the marker board. I continue to do this one at a time until all the resources have been given to their respective country and the countries total income written on the board. (To make things more interesting, you can mix up who gets what resource instead of just; one country, one resource)4. TRADE:Explain how to trade. I tell them they have one year. I do not tell them that that is 5 minutes. And I explain their goal is to be the richest and that there is a prize for it. Each resource has a fixed amount of how much they are worth each year. While the students are trading I leave the price of each resource on the powerpoint so students can see. That slide is also a countdown timer. You will notice the months in the top right hand corner. Those will change and end after 5 minutes. 5. TALLY:When the year is over have the students sit down and tally up how much their country owns. Write the new scores on the marker board and introduce the World Situation.6. WORLD SITUATION:These are game changers. These force prices to go either up or down. After explaining that, move on to the next slide which will display the updated prices for each resource one by one. And let the New Year begin! Continue until the year 2014.

you can get the 2nd ppt the rest is just cards with oil, wood etc on it. You could make your own.Code: [Select]HOW TO:1. START:I start by having the desks in a circle.
