  1. Group Work
    • The prices of some products change a great deal in a short time, while the prices for other products remain quite stable.  Work as a team to identify several products that experience regular price changes and several that do not.  Get a piece of construction paper and divide it in half.  Label one half Unstable Pricing and the other half labeled Stable Pricing.  Use magazines to find pictures of each product and glue them on the side that it represents.  You should have a minimum of 8 products shown on each side of your construction paper, thus a minimum of 16 products total.
