In this lesson, students will be asked to make choices and reflect upon those choices as they build a game. Students will work with a budget that adds a level of real-world experience to their learning. This lesson requires students to think critically about their choices and collaborate with their partners to produce a game that is exciting but stays within their budgets.
Students will be able to:
- Make better choices when making their own personal economic decisions.
- Work toward clearly articulating and demonstrating the need to make sound economic choices in order to achieve personal financial gains.
- Begin to understand the importance of consumer preferences and the design/distribution of a product.
- Use terms such as opportunity, cost, and choice to clearly articulate to their peers their understanding of how a budget will affect their choices.
