Teams will be shown the statistic for one country using the economic objective of their choice or FiFA world ranking. They are also shown the name of another country – their task is to say whether they think the performance of the second country will be higher or lower than the original country. If they get the answer correct they score a point, if incorrect they do not score. After answering a third country is shown and the team must decide whether the performance is higher or lower than the second country. This process is repeated until 5 countries have been shown. The maximum score per round is 4 marks. The data used shows the IMF’s predicted level of economic performance using 4 different categories for 2015 and current FiFA world ranking. Setting up: This resource uses ‘macros’ embedded in the Powerpoint file. These needs to be ‘enabled’ when prompted.
How to play: Start the slideshow from slide 1 and show students the aim of the game. Split the class into 5 teams and assign each team a number. Ask for a member of team 1 to come to the front. This volunteer can then be asked to choose one of the 5 categories (or the teacher can choose for them!). Click on the chosen category. The board will show one country and its forecasted performance in the chosen category plus the name of the next country in the sequence. Click on higher (the up arrow) or lower (the down arrow) depending on whether the team thinks the performance for the next country will be higher or lower in that category. If they are correct they will earn a point. After clicking the arrow a third country’s data name will appear. Repeat the ‘higher’ or ‘lower’ process comparing the third country to the second. Repeat the process until 4 new countries have appeared. The highest possible score in one round is 4. Click on ‘score board’ to be taken to the score screen. Click on the team name to increase their score by 1 (e.g. click 3 times if they scored 3). Click on ‘home’ and ask team 2 to go next. Repeat this process with team 2, 3, 4 and 5. Notes on this table: 1.GDP – expressed as a percentage increase on the previous year. 2.Inflation – using CPI measure; increase in average prices as a percentage of previous year. 3.Unemployment – using Labour Force Survey measure; percentage of total workforce classified as unemployed. 4.Govt debt – Government debt expressed as a percentage of country’s GDP. 5.Current FiFA world ranking for the countries taking part in the world cup
