The FREE life-sized game that teaches High School Students about the financial demands of the real world.
About Finances 101
Finances 101 is available as an Online Sim-type Game (see above) and as a life-sized game board in a school or community center setting.
Students travel around a life-sized game board. Some of life’s choices lie in the draw of the cards, the roll of the dice or the spin of a wheel.
Students may payout money to be in a friend’s wedding, have a winning lottery ticket, pay an unexpected visit to the emergency room or get a promotion at work. There is uncertainty around every corner, along with opportunities to make sound financial decisions too!
•About earning a salary and paying bills and taxes
•What it costs to run a household
•How earnings impact buying decisions
•What responsibilities lie ahead in the adult world
These Finances 101 in-person events are held a few times a year in various locations in NW Ohio.
