Mrs. Gordon from Glendale AZ is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning about Financial Literacy with Osmo Pizza Co.

My students need an iPad and Osmo base to use with our Osmo Pizza Co game to help them learn about financial literacy.

  • $496 goal

This project expired on December 31, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are second graders from a high poverty school. My students are very inquisitive and love science, math, reading and hands-on and fast-paced projects; however, funds are limited.

I want to give the 2nd grade students at my school access to iPads to help them become more savvy with financial literacy.

Students will use the iPad along with Osmo Pizza Co., which allows them to practice their money skills in a highly engaging way while earning rewards along the way.

My Project

My students will use an iPad along with Osmo Pizza Co. to learn about financial literacy in a highly engaging method. Each student is given their own virtual pizza shop that they use to make money. They have play pizzas that they make for their virtual customers, who they get paid from and have to give change back to.

The students find using Osmo Pizza Co with an iPad to be very motivating and engaging!

They love that they get to work with "customers" and get feedback on how they are doing. They love to pay their rent, and buy the supplies needed to make their pizzas.
