Foundational Financial Skills
Our experiential game is played online, and offers students the chance to make real-world decisions about the management of a local store.
Over the course of the game, while dealing with new business challenges and opportunities, students are introduced to fundamental concepts in financial literacy, including long-term planning, debt, interest and more.
Throughout the game, students use essential money management tools, including bank accounts, budgets, and bank statements, building essential skills that translate into positive impacts in their lives.
Teachers are supported to deliver the game in class through adaptable lesson plans, exercises and worksheets.
The game is well-suited for use in the following classes: Careers, Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Business; as well as service-learning environments.
