Living on Your Own: An Independent Living Simulation

Living on Your Own: An Independent Living Simulation


Product Description

This unique, life-management set, contains a reproducible book of teacher guided lessons and a workbook of application exercises. Students learn to make independent decisions and then experience the results of their choices. During the 12-week simulation, students live and work in the imaginary towns of Walchville and Rivertown. They:

  • Open bank accounts
  • Make budgets
  • Use public transportation
  • Buy on credit
  • Deal with the consequences of their decisions

They also learn to meet small emergencies and unexpected expenses in the final weeks of this simulation. The lifelike continuity and sequential approach of this package makes it an effective tool for fostering self-confidence and independence. Student workbook activities apply concepts from lessons to teach practical life management skills. Students learn to use:

  • Transportation Maps and Schedules
  • Ads
  • Application Forms
  • Checks 

The teacher's manual provides reproducible materials necessary to the simulation, as well as copies of student worksheets, answers, and complete lesson plans.

Most of the student workbook is in 12-pt type. The workbook may be enlarged if necessary or students may gain valuable practice using a magnifier.

Grades 8-12.

Student Workbook Available Separately
