This game was designed to take your students through the real life application of spending earned income to make decisions between wants and needs. Included are 8 scenario cards about 8 different kids who have earned an income and are ready to spend that income at the school festival on tickets. Each scenario has something the student NEEDS to buy and several wants. Students will have to decide which WANTS they can afford based on the tickets they have left. This is aligned with the new Personal Financial Literacy Math TEKS K.9 (D) & 1.9 (B). These standards can be found in Social Studies Common Core.
For younger grades, teacher may decide to read scenario cards and have students make decisions.
