Microcosms are self-contained models of larger and more complex systems. Lessons learned, including what are good things to do and results to get, can be transferred to the bigger productive world.
Examples of microcosms that can be used in education are:
- Fish tanks
- Lemonade stands and bake sales
- One person businesses
- Some team sports
- Do blog reporting on local news
- Plan a trip to any location, down to budgets, flight times, and hotels.
