Product Description
Students are given a person’s financial scenario and must help that person determine how much money they need to save in order to meet their retirement goals. They are asked to put a certain percentage of their gross monthly income into a 401(k). Then, students will use string to graphically measure the estimated returns that can accrue with Roth IRAs when people begin saving at a young age compared to beginning to save at an older age.

This activity is a simulation in my book, "You're Gonna Need a Bigger Wallet." The entire book's .pdf can be purchased at a discount from my TPT store at the following link:
