Lynda Motiram from Old Mill High School in Millersville, Maryland, adopted graph relays as a classroom activity that quickly became a favorite tool for reinforcing economic concepts. Ms. Motiram recommends this easy-preparation activity to keep your class engaged by working and collaborating in group and using board work to reinforce the lessons. For Ms. Motiram, one of the best outcomes is seeing students that are struggling with the lecture grasp the concepts when using the graph relay.
