The Mapleton Monopoly Game

Submitted by jeffrey.nelson on Tue, 10/02/2012 - 14:13

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.
