Tax Activity

We did an activity that was similar to what the taxes were like back then.  First our teacher acted as British.  She gave everyone a cup of 10 mints which were like money.  Then she would call out thing like,”If you have brown hair.”  It would cost people 3 mints for people with brown hair.  She kept saying questions until she said 5 questions.  Most of the people in my class had no more mints left in their cup at the end.  I’ve learned that taxes back then were unfair and it could have been handled a lot better.
