JA Finance Park Virtual

What is JA Finance Park Virtual®?

Imagine you're a 27-year-old single parent working as an office assistant and making $25,000 a year, or perhaps you are a single 35-year-old regional manager making $65,000 annually. How will you manage your money? Through a series of classroom activities and a virtual experience in JA Finance Park, students experience making real-life financial decisions including choices related to income, expenses, savings & credit.

JA Finance Park Virtual Lessons Outline

Teachers can present the lessons included in JA Finance Park at any time. Teachers should determine, in advance, which lessons they would like their volunteer to present- this could be determined by scheduling needs and/or the volunteer's area of expertise. Some lessons are more conducive to being volunteer-led. The lessons included in the four, core units are key to the student's success in the virtual Finance Park simulations. Additionally, the extension activities may be more relevant at some grade levels than others.
