This is a 9 weeks project where students study, blog and podcast about financial literacy. Students pick various topics to blog and podcast about on a weekly basis while trying to earn money for their families and reach financial independence first. Each family is given an annual income and every week acts as a month.
Resources include Net Worth Calculator, Budgeting Calculator, assessment list, entry event, economic blog topic, sand instructions.
An extension of this lesson is to have students play the Stock Market Game and calculate their earnings into Net Worth.
The first family to accumulate enough wealth to retire early ($500,000) wins the game.
