Product Description
This project is a comprehensive life and budgeting project.

The idea is to give students a taste of what it is like to have to manage a real budget with real expenses. I used this project as the basis for a semester long class about managing money and career development.

Included in this product are student instructions, Life Strikes! cards (which include events that could mess up even the most carefully planned budget!) All that you need to do is to decide on how much money to give the students!

In order to add a huge aspect of realism and create a unique experience for each student, I encourage you to check out my Life Strikes! Life Generator. The generator is a JavaScript webpage that will randomly create the parameters for each student to have a very unique experience. The results are based on available data from the 2010 Census (most recent available) and make for great discussions for any grade level! The classroom discussions that can come out of the unique experiences for each student are endless and add incredibly value and differentiation to this project.
