My personal finance students would like an engaging activity where they can apply what they are learning. They enjoy hands-on activities, and these board games will allow them to earn a salary, pay bills, save and pay down debt, and discover the importance of budgeting and saving.
Most of my students are looking forward to moving out of their parents' homes.
Many of them will continuing their education in a college or vocational/trade training program while others will enter directly into the workforce.
Act Your Wage! is a game offered by Dave Ramsey that will go nicely with our new curriculum from Next Gen Personal Finance (NGPF). NGPF is an organization dedicated to providing a free, high quality education to improve students' financial capability.
The games I have selected are designed to help students understand that it is important to keep your savings up, expenses down and be debt-free!
These games will help teach students to keep an emergency fund and plan for expenses using the envelope system.
