Engaging Lesson Starter - Conveyor Belt Memory Game

Jonny Clark

29th January 2016

Here's a fun and engaging lesson starter for your next Economics lesson called 'Conveyor Belt Memory Game' (hat tip to Paul Hoang from Sha Tin College in Hong Kong for the concept).

Run the Powerpoint and tell your students to memorise the 12 goods or services shown on the conveyor belt. They must not write down what they see - they must attempt to memorise all 12! Once the conveyor belt has stopped (along with the music) your students are left with a series of questions - give them 2 minutes to answer:

Which of the goods or services could be classified as:

1. Being de-merit goods

2. Being Price Inelastic

3. 2 Products that have joint demand

4. Having inelastic supply

5. Having negative income elasticity

6. Being a normal good

Go through the answers using the same Powerpoint.
