Budgeting- SPENT Online Interactive Game Directions/Discussion Sheets- MUST CHECK THIS SITE OUT!!
"SPENT" is an amazing web-based game in which players see what it is like trying to survive with a poor paying job and how important it is to have a good paying "career." Students choose a job and then will go through a series of questions. The goal is to make it through a month and still have money left in their bank account. As they go through the month they will see first hand all the many "sudden" things that happen in life- sudden car repair, appliance breaks, child needs something, etc. It is a real reality check for students. My students love this game! Please check out the website- www.playspent.org.This is great for a personal finance class, career-related class, etc.
This download contains an explanation sheet/directions/tips for the students and a teacher discussion sheet I created.
