Finance: Exploring Monopoly (5th-8th)

Teacher: Jim Lindner

Description: We will be exploring the game of Monopoly in many aspects. Monopoly is a fun game to learn, but has many life lessons to teach the players of the game. The students will not only learn to play the game of Monopoly, but learn about the following: Property, Mortgages, Principal, Interest, Taxes, Insurance, Penalty, and Risk (what is to gain or lose). Starting out we will learn the game of Monopoly. Then we will acquire an awareness of how Property, Mortgages, etc. apply to life lessons and the Risks involved. All will be taught in a fun atmosphere which each student will have a basic understanding of these concepts and how they apply to life.
