February 11th - Game of Life
We need volunteers!
The Game of Life for McKamy 8th graders is designed to let them experience life in the real world. They are told to pretend they are 25 years old, living on their own and just finished their Bachelor's degree. Based on the job description they draw, they are given a monthly salary. Then they must stop at the Banking, Housing, and Automotive tables before other stations like Insurance, Groceries and Entertainment. As they visit each station, they make choices and subtract costs from their monthly salary with the aim of staying out of the negative! The volunteers help the students think about the choices available at each station. It's easy and a lot of fun!
