Practice Debit/Credit with Monopoly | Personal Finance | Family and Consumer Sciences
My students had a great time playing Monopoly for a day. They didn’t even seem to notice the learning objective attached: Keeping a running balance on a checking account.
Instead of cash students played with a checkbook register. Their opening balance was $1500. As they played they had to record transactions in their register and keep a running balance.
Download a blank checkbook register worksheet here. You could also have students write checks for every transaction if that was a goal for your students to learn.
Students who were absent played alone online here and turned in their balance sheet. I asked them to play long enough to fill at least half of the page.
