On the first day of class, (in January) my students played Financial Football, a game created by “Practical Money Skills for Life”, a website that offers a ton of online money management tools for young people. The students enjoyed and have been asking me everyday to play it since the Saints won the NFC championship. They played today for good luck before the Super Bowl. We use activotes and the Promethean board to play.
Our class was mentioned in Tuesday’s paper for our efforts: http://www.nola.com/superbowl/index.ssf/2010/02/schools_adapt_lessons_to_capit.html
Please visit these sites to see Financial Football and the other tools offered by its makers, check out the photos of my students enjoying the game, and please pray for our boys in Miami on Sunday night!!!
