Looking for a fun way to get your students talking, moving, and collaborating? Look no further!
This game was designed to help students learn about managing personal finances. Topics reviewed in this game include basic taxes, student loans, mortgages, auto loans, credit card debt, personal finance vocabulary, and interest calculation. The clue files include fictional student loan and credit card statements, which are nearly identical to what real statements look like. Students will have to budget to purchase a home, calculate the payoff for their student loans based on the standard 10-year repayment plan, compare auto loan companies to determine the best deal for their financial situation (provided for the story), calculate the interest for credit card debt, define basic personal finance terms, and do some research to understand basic tax terminology.

★ Breakout games involve additional setup such as printing clues, color coding clues (if you let students work in teams), and in some cases writing on supplemental files with invisible ink
★ Supplies needed for this game include invisible ink pens, black light flashlights, and QR Readers
★ If you purchase this breakout and are not able to get all of the supplies, please get in touch with me. I can help you create alternate ways to present the clue to students if needed.
★ Most of these games involve clues that have a uniform answer, regardless of where the game is played. However, some games involve numbers such as pages in a dictionary or atlas. In these cases, the explanation document will tell you that you need to customize the answer based on your resources.
★ Please try the game at least one day before you would like to try it with your students and get in touch with me if you have any questions. I usually respond to emails within a few hours. Try it out beforehand to ensure that you completely understand how each clue can be solved.
