Agribusiness Management Inputs and Outputs No Bake Cookies

Overview

The Scope of the Agribusiness Industry unit breaks the agribusiness sectors down into input or output or sales versus services.  To help the students understand what agricultural inputs and outputs are in the agricultural products and service industries they conduct a simulation using a no bake cookie recipe.  The students are broken up into pairs or small groups and each group is given a card explainng their agribusiness.  The students create a promotional flyer or sign for their agribusiness.  One group represents the farmer and they have to visit each of the agribusinesses in order to produce their product.
