Mr. Rocky Biggers' social studies classes do skits to represent certain scenarios of supply and demand. The students were split up into groups, one per table, and then split in to two groups per table. Biggers gave each table a different scenario, and one group at a table had to act out that scenario in a market economy, and the other group had to act it out in a command economy.
