10 Chairs — Unequal Distribution of Wealth
This is an economics lesson in English. I have done it twice in Japan with H.S. grade 2 students in a “Comparative Culture” class (it is an elective social studies class taught in English). It fits into our unit on Global Inequalities.
The lesson is quite popular in American classrooms. A thorough description can be found on many websites. Here are a few links to the lesson plan:
