to teach my 8th graders about agricultural business, I have come up with an activity where we use M and Ms as our stock and based on the color of the M and M, that determines type of livestock. I give them scenarios and they have to work through them, recording, profits and losses, market prices, weight, yield, quality ect.

 

They seem to enjoy the activity and in the end they get to eat some chocolate!
