Lights, Camera, Budget!
Students will be able to:
- Apply the rational decision-making model to a variety of decisions making a movie.
In this economics activity, students answer personal finance questions in order to earn money that they use to get a movie produced.
Lights, Camera, Budget! is an online game designed to help students master financial literacy concepts. The object of the game is for students to earn investment $$$ by answering personal finance questions correctly. The money they earn goes toward creating a “movie” that they design by making budgeting decisions based on their total investment amount earned. The more money they earn by answering questions correctly , the higher the budget they have to hire directors, actors, extras, etc for their movie.
