1.1.5 Specialisation & Division of labour - Theme 1 Edexcel A Level Economics
This lesson introduces learners to the important concept of specialisation and divison of labour, we start with a game where students produce a paper aeroplane, with and without specialisation to introduce the concept of efficiency when speciailising. We talk about the roots of this concept from Adam Smith and some real life examples of long supply chains yet the most efficient. After looking at divison of labour and functions of money, students have the opportunity to attempt a specialisation question (on a macro level rather than micro but same concept), structure guidance and a concise model answer is provided before we finish with a box plenary.
Colourful, concise and engaging slides!
