Students have so much fun with this that they forget that they are learning!!!
This fun activity allows students an opportunity to manage their own budgets. After creating their own classroom checkbooks, students earn a weekly "paycheck" by just doing what is already expected. They will be expected to record their earnings as well as pay recurring weekly bills and even some unexpected debts. Additionally, students will even be able to spend any savings they might have in the classroom store. This is an excellent activity to go along with teaching digital spreadsheets.
Skills Learned: Budgeting, Financial Literacy, Check-writing, Various Soft Skills, and Excel or Google Spreadsheets.
