The Credit Union Financial Fitness Fair: A Money Management Experience
This money management simulation for teens is similar to 'The Game of LIFE' and was founded by Maine’s Credit Unions in 2004. Since then, Financial Fitness Fairs have been attended by tens of thousands of students across the state of Maine.
Now you do not have to wait for a fair to come to your school!
Designed to look and feel like the live version, which typically takes place in a school gymnasium, this 'Money Management Experience' is now easily accessible for students online!
You will be given a career and monthly income and then have to visit booths associated with various expenses that the average adult is faced with each month. Your goal is to create a monthly budget that does not exceed your monthly income.
Enter the code ARSTK (case sensitive) and then choose a career.
Play this game to learn if you can follow a budget and break even after your bills are paid!
When kids play MoneyIsland, they enter a virtual world that not only makes learning fun, but also tracks and encourages their progress. As they go on quests to fantastic destinations like the Eiffel Tower and Atlantis, they learn real-life principles of financial responsibility.
MoneyIsland provides invaluable life lessons that better prepare future generations. Aligned with national standards published by the Jump$tart Coalition® for Personal Financial Literacy, the MoneyIsland curriculum builds skills in three basic areas: Saving & Spending, Earning & Investing, and Using Credit Wisely.
Children who play MoneyIsland might not realize today how critical the lessons they're learning are, but they will as adults.
