Many young people can’t wait to become adults, they look forward to the freedom and ability to make choices and be independent. They believe that it’s not really that hard. Well this is an assignment that will hopefully give them a glimpse of reality.
This project is very similar to the old board game “Life” except that it’s a little bit more realistic and contains a whole lot a math. I have designed it to be user friendly. It will walk you through the phases step by step, I’ve also made the tax and budget sheets easy to follow. This assignment works with multiple subjects; Math, Social Studies, Language Arts, etc… For Language Arts you could easily add some journaling. Feel free to teach it in a way that works for you and your students. If you have any suggestions and questions just shoot me a message. HAVE FUN & ENJOY!!!
