Wheel of Fortune - Financial Literacy and Social Justice


Instructions:

For information on how you can use the spinner above open this PDF document.

Suggested Lessons or Activities:

Please open the PDF document. Feel free to print and use it in your classroom.

Page 1: One Stop TimberShop - make decisions on what to spend your money on. Red numbers are the tokens needed to purchase the items in the shop.
Page 2: Budget Tracking Sheet - Keep track of your budget.
Page 3: Needs vs Wants and Reflection Sheet.

You may start your class with 50 tokens in week 1 allowing them to spend more freely or save. Our teachers are working within the classroom using the interactive whiteboard and do the Timbershop activities only three times each week. This is one model the teachers came up with.

Week 1: 50 tokens (income to spend)
Week 2: 35 (income to spend)
Week 3: 25 (income to spend)

As the weeks progress, it will become harder and harder to manage your finances. Other than being a financial literacy project, this is also about Social Justice, dealing with issues related to poverty.
