Both of my classes had so much fun with the Budget Game and had no idea of all the learning that occurred! Thank you for making this available. It is so hard to find quality, free resources.
This is an absolutely fantastic program that I wish ALL students had the opportunity to participate in. Your game has provided so many opportunities to relate the real world to my students in a way that is fun, and interactive but also gives them real world skills that will help them throughout their lives.
We now talk about IPO’s and company announcements and budgets and a whole assortment of other real life topics that in the past would have required an entire lesson to help them understand the basics just to have a conversation. Bravo! Not only did you help my students but you made my job easier and more fun as well.
Thank you for making this amazing learning experience available to my students, and of course my congratulations to the other top 5 finishing students; as well as the entire 14,500+ student participants from across Canada, the USA, and elsewhere (?) who participated so enthusiastically, and did such a great job of representing their class/school.
