Spending money on a limited budget-Just like real life!
I highly recommend this learning tool. Students realize that money does not grow on trees and how they are going to make it to their next pay check. Students are required to make a variety of spending situations with the goal of making it to the next paycheck.
How I Use It
This teacher guided spending money scenario is a real eye opener for students. Each time students are asked to make a financial decision the teacher is able to explain the pros or cons of making that decision. Students will learn that you can not always have what you want because of basic needs.
