Product Description

This is my capstone project as a middle school teacher. It is a "gamified" project that feels like playing the Game of Life with real life calculations and considerations. It would be a great high school / life skills / or Math assignment as well as students learn how challenging it is to manage your salary, taxes, and personal expensive. This project involves being assigned one of five careers with locations in California (you can white out the cities if you want), that become part of a future self narrative, budget, and career exploration project. This can be a 3 day lesson, or extend up to 3 weeks as needed for extensions, adjustments, or additional ideas as student present questions. Great for Jr. High, middle school 8th grade, High School, or independent work and career exploration.

My students love thinking about their future selves! Parents usually thank me for giving their students perspective and gratitude as well, for the work it takes to balance a family's budget.

My students love this future self project and learn a lot about how much it takes in life to plan, find a home, make a budget, calculate a mortgage, and consider how well their individual skills and aspirations match with their assigned careers. Students have to make calculations, estimations, look up more information, and critically think about their life situations.

Total: 9 pages, 5 career options, analysis pages, budgeting table, provided salaries, and other considerations.
