CLASSROOM CITY

A Simulation of Local Government and Economics in a Classroom Mini-City

Students design, run, and sustain a classroom mini-city while striving to accumulate money and assets in this simulation dealing with local government and economics. "Citizens" plan the city's geographical and political structure, elect officials, appoint individuals to city positions—such as bank president, police chief, and postmaster—and learn to manage money while buying and selling property in order to replicate the governmental workings of a modern city. Fate Cards introduce unexpected yet commonplace expenditures and incomes—purchasing a birthday present, paying a doctor's bill, winning prize money—that affect citizens' monetary funds. Time: Up to 30 class periods. Grades 5–9. 8½" x 11". Interact. Approximately 100 pages. Third Edition. ©2016.
