A New Beginning – Island Economy Activity

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 6 pages | Grades: 6

An activity where students work together to create an economy on a deserted island.

Sssssssssss. You hear the sound of the last life jacket deflating. You look around. Behind you, there is nothing but vast, open water. In front, trees as far as the eye can see. Ten people are standing near you, wondering the same thing you are – ”What now?”

Challenge your students to create an economy on a deserted island with this fun project!

Students will work in groups to answer questions and apply their knowledge of economic principles to create a functioning economy.
