7th and 8th grade students will participate in the annual Reality Fair. This is a fantastic activity in which our students are given a heavy dose of “reality.” Armed with a fictional job and a paycheck, students try to meet their monthly financial obligations –- without going bankrupt. They’ll find out who their spouse is (big-dollar airline pilot or stay-at-home parent?) and how many children they have, and then they’ll set about making financial choices and paying their bills. Some will even suffer the “fickle fingers of fate” to make the experience more realistic.
