Through this webquest students will learn about the laws of supply and demand, the effect of supply and demand on price, and the importance of inventions on the production process. They will do this by conducting research and creating their own candy bar.


Charlie wants to create a new candy for Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. He is having trouble coming up with a new idea. It is now your chance to invent the next delicious creation for the chocolate factory.

In groups of 4 you will be responsible for coming up with a new candy bar. You will have to name it, design a wrapper for it, price it, create a slogan, and act out a commercial in front of the class.
