  • This is an awesome activity that will help you apply what you are learning in your macroeconomics class. Specifically, monetray policy and the role of the Federal Reserve.
    Teachers: I made a video that gives you more details about how to run this activity and gives you the link to the the PDF. The video is on my other TVclip channel: goo.gl/65RQCi

    I did this in class today. It took us about 45 minutes total from passing out to end. The kids suggested a "lying limit" of 5 per person and suggested that the players take turns giving answers. They felt like the person going last has the best opportunity to lie based on what the others say. They really liked it and were complete engaged. They didn't use the game board much and were more focused on "one upping" each other.
    I teach both AP and non AP macro classes. I found it well suited to both. The AP students seemed to need a bit less review of these concepts and less help with the scenarios.
    Thanks for this. I love having something fresh for class.
