WOSU Public Media: The Bakery Shop

Here’s a great interactive game to entice your elementary students to learn about concepts in economics. In the Bakery Shop game, students borrow money to open a shop, make decisions on what to bake, what supplies to buy, and in the end, generate a profit. The shop owner needs to recognize the wants of the customers, manage the ingredients correctly, and bake what will keep the customers happy. The instructions are clear and simple enough for a second-grader.
