This is my all-time favourite activity for teacing Division of Labour. This hands-on resource lays out everything you need to simulate Adam Smith's Pin Factory observations in the classroom, with an added element of competition.


This product is also available as part of my Specialisation Bundle, which will save you a few bob.
