Goods and Services: Some Private, Some Not

Updated: July 27 2020


Teachers will be able to:

  • Teach students why taxes are collected.
  • Explain which goods and services are provided by private companies and which are provided by the government.

In this economics webinar, use role playing to teach about how governments and partnerships provide for citizens and economies.


Learn how to lead students through a town-building exercise to teach why we pay taxes, and which goods and services are provided by the government and which by private companies.
