This project is designed to provide your students with a glimpse of what it is like to be an adult. They will have a career and earn money every day. During the simulation the students are treated as adults; they have responsibilities, such as making sure they have food to eat, a warm safe place to live, clothing suitable for the weather, and transportation. They will have to make choices and decide what is most important. If students have money left over they can spend it on things they want instead of things they need. Of course, the students may save their extra money for the future.
