Spartan Dollar$ and ¢ents
Spartan Dollar$ and ¢ents is a budgeting simulation that teaches participants to prepare a usable budget and it reinforces the value of creating one to track monthly income and expenses. This activity works well with middle- and high-school youth. However, it can also be used with upper-elementary youth with assistance from multiple volunteers. The game takes 45 to 60 minutes depending on the group’s size and the participants’ ages. To use this activity, you will only need to supply pencils, local classified advertisements and calculators. Everything else (including complete instructions) is contained in the PDF.
