what students are saying about the programs

Week by week, the same process and choices are offered and very quickly kids get a sense of the risk vs. reward of insurance. Once all bills are paid, kids can spend their virtual dollars in a classroom store with goods and services.

As business decisions are made, students start to see their stocks rise and fall. Quickly they will see how circumstances affect net wealth and the health of a company and personal finances.

Valuable lessons in self restraint or abundance are had along with the experience of emotions in a short 4-6 week study, to gain lessons that will hopefully last a lifetime.

Teachers can choose to use classroom jobs like take lunch count, put up chairs at the end of the day, etc. and turn them into a valuable lesson about hard work and working towards goals and rewards.
