Students participate in interactive games in which they purchase, produce and sell materials and goods to investigate the role supply, demand and government have in setting market prices.

"An engaging, curriculum aligned and interactive incursion for our year 5 students. The 90 minute session allowed the students to develop deeper understandings, ask questions and work in teams to explore economic concepts. Thank you for the enjoyable session!"
Louise, Kent Park Primary School
"The students (and teachers) were all engaged and were given a hands on experience to learn about wants and needs, supply and demand and scarcity. I highly recommend the Market Manoeuvres incursion!"
Ritika, William Ruthven Primary School
“I had to go to work to earn my money. Then I spent $500 on shopping, mortgage, bills, medical expenses and tax.” Life’s tough in the real world!"
“I learned that it’s hard to persuade people to buy your stuff. It’s very competitive."
