### Bank Account Board Game: A Fun, Financial Literacy Lesson for Addition, Subtraction, or Integer Practice (Grades 3-7)

Do you want to give your students real world math practice for addition and subtraction up to 4 digits? Do you want to show them how the math they learn in the classroom is helpful in everyday life? Do you want to find a way to have them practice loads of math without even noticing? Then this financial literacy board game is perfect for you!

How to Use:

• Print the two page handout double-sided for each student. Go through the bank account vocabulary together as a class. Then give your students time to try to match the vocabulary words to the clues.

• Next, talk about what actions help your bank balance and what actions hurt it, and try to think of more examples as a class. Now you are ready for the game!

• Print a game board for each group of 2-4 students, have six-sided dice, and small objects to use as counters.

• The game’s main objective is to educate students about financial literacy concepts such as spending (withdrawing) and saving (depositing) money within the context of a bank account.

• Each child takes turns rolling a six-sided die while using counters on the board. Students start with a \$300 bank balance, and each turn leads them to a realistic scenario that increases or decreases their balance. I encourage students to use a scrap piece of paper to keep a running tally of their balance throughout the game.

• Although rare, some sequences of turns can result in negative balances. If this occurs, you can help your students use integers to calculate a negative balance OR create a rule that students can not have a balance below zero, so they can not complete that action and must miss. a turn.

Grades to Use With:

This game is perfect for students in grades 3-7 who are practicing adding and subtracting with numbers into the thousands. It can be used as a review for this math skill or in conjunction with a financial literacy unit.
