The Mapleton Monopoly Game

Students in Miss Anderson’s class learn economics by playing The Mapleton Monopoly.

The classic board game Monopoly was the talk of Mapleton Jr. recently as Miss Anderson and Mr. Hubbard used it to teach students the difference between world economic systems. Most students enjoyed playing Capitalism Monopoly because they were able to make a lot of money, own key properties like Boardwalk, and dominate the competition. The mood of students changed dramatically, however, as they played Socialism Monopoly. Outcries of unfairness and frustration were heard around the classrooms as students lost money to high taxes and had utilities and railroads taken away to be placed under government control. During Communism Monopoly day, most students simply gave up in disgust as all of their money and properties were seized by the government bank. Social studies students at MJHS will never forget the amazing learning experience of playing The Mapleton Monopoly.
