'Muffins to Go' business game

An interactive classroom game, 'Muffins to Go', is also included in this resource pack. This game gives up to 8 teams of students the chance to make business decisions in running their own businesses. The decisions they make, regarding production plans, the selling price and marketing expenditure of freshly made muffins are impacted by the decisons made by the other teams, as well as the external environment. Students keep track of their finances by creating simple profit and loss accounts.

The game is controlled by the teacher who uses a fully-featured Excel spreadsheet (Microsoft Excel not included in the pack!) to calculate the movement of the market in each of the 6 rounds of the game. The teacher can also keep an eye on students' calculations using the spreadsheet. This game has proven to be a wonderful way to cover a wide range of basic terminology, as well as to engage students in the subject - they have, in the past, often asked for it again and again throughout the course. Muffins to Go alone is probably worth the purchase price of the pack!
