NGPF does have a salary based budgeting activity (a bit more work than a animated online simulator) and it’s actually my personal favorite. When I filled this in myself I set myself as a highly paid lawyer and tried to see if I can buy myself a nice car and eat $35 meals 5 times a week. You can find it here: https://www.gooru.org/#collection-play&id=e8e82253-dbf7-4d1f-b826-1d7f820db1ae&subject=featured&lessonId=1&lid=b42dd951-fa2f-4429-95d8-7edcba5d88a4&eventid=7653BCB4-A427-434B-8475-F477822AA9BC&rid=49498a30-f3c0-4a2c-85a2-da13aa312061

I have never used these in-class, but I just stumbled upon these two from Practical Money Skills for Life: a basic budget (http://www.practicalmoneyskills.com/calculators/calculate/reworkYourBudget.php?calcCategory=budget) and a holiday budget (http://www.practicalmoneyskills.com/calculators/calculate/yourHolidayBudget.php?calcCategory=budget). They are more like calculators than simulations, but I figured I’d share anyway in case this works for you, plengauer.

I discovered this year the H&R Block Budget Challenge. It’s a 10 week ongoing budget and money management simulation that I’ve woven throughout my semester finance class. It was kind of cumbersome to get started but the students are really enjoying the real life feel. The goal is to try to save as much in your 401K and still have enough money to pay your bills each month.

Spent is the most popular game in the NGPF interactive library: http://nextgenpersonalfinance.org/simulation-living-the-life-of-minimum-wage-worker-spent/. Here is how one teacher described the game: ” “Spent” the last half hour trying to make it through the month with SPENT. My students are going to have so many questions and gain an awareness of their family, neighbors, city…please, please, please keep this great stuff heading our way.

I recently added a worksheet for your students to complete while they play the SPENT game from our interactive library: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1phvcH9Ln_UOPjX_W32gU6dfKxFfJVCxzvdsT_f7C_U0/edit?usp=sharing
