These programs give students the chance to experience personal finances in the real world.  Students receive a scenario and then visit stations around the room such as food, housing, and transportation to 'spend' their monthly salary. These programs complement the grade-level SOLs and present the concepts using the 4-H Experiential Learning Model.
