Incentives Are All Around Us Lesson for Grades 9-12

Students play a game to experience gaining the reward that comes with positive incentives and paying the penalty that comes with negative incentives. Varieties of incentives are introduced to discuss types of incentives, what behavior they are trying to encourage or discourage, and who creates these incentives. After applying their gained knowledge of incentives, students are assessed by creating an incentive following a step-by-step guide and then presenting it to the class.

This lesson plan is designed for teaching grades 9, 10, 11 and 12.
