PLAY: Federal Reserve Game Show - March FOMC Press Conference Activity

Have your students compete in a game show-style activity about Federal Reserve, interest rates, and more!

In its never-ending quest to tame inflation, the Federal Reserve has announced yet another 0.25% increase in the federal funds rate. As banks are failing and inflation pressures are still high, it's more important than ever to help students understand what this all means. Use the brand new activity PLAY: Federal Reserve Game Show to give students a look at Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell's press conference, followed by a fun team-based game to spark discussion and learning. 

We look forward to continuing to bring you timely and helpful tools to help your students make the connection between economics and our everyday lives!
