Buying and selling

Divide the class into two halves – sellers and buyers. Sellers must think of a product or service, decide on an improved version and then complete their cards in writing (briefly check these). Tell the buyers how many things they can buy. This number should be half the number of sellers. (eg, if there are ten sellers, the buyers can buy five products/services).

   The students circulate. The sellers must try to sell their products/services to as many buyers as they can, keeping a record of how many sales they make. Continue until the sellers have spoken to all or most of the buyers. The “winner” is the seller with the highest number of sales.
