Make economics fun and hands-on with this game!

Win-Win is a classroom trading game that gets every student involved. Through the experience of actually trading items, students will learn important lessons about economics and trade. The real-life dimension of the game (that students get to keep traded items) engages them in a way few classroom exercises can match. After they play the game, you can debrief them on their experience and share important lessons. We've suggested some possible points for discussion. Even the most disinterested student will be drawn into the excitement of Win-Win.

Please note: The DVD is a training video, instructing the teacher on how to run the game. It is not meant for viewing by your students.

Great quality video with a very "do-able" lesson. High interest for students that got them talking about a subject that can be pretty boring.

The kids loved it, the discussions about trade and commerce that sprung up after was a true teachable moment. Thanks

The process was clearly described and shown in the video and the disc with papers was very useful. One of the better videos that I have used. The students were very enthusiastic and completely engaged.

This DVD was a great way to enrich the lessons taught on trade. Now the students have a tangible way of understanding the benefits of trade.

This is an exceptional activity to teach why trade among the Native Americans an early settlers was "fair."

Great video -- what I love about this one is that it's an activity. I'm always looking for new teaching strategies and this one was perfect for Economics. Would love to see more activity-based DVDs like this. Thank you!
