Description

Regarding: Bite of Reality – Fun and Interactive

Bite of Reality is a two-and-a-half-hour, hands-on simulation that appeals to teens and adults while giving them a taste of real-world financial realities. Teens and adults are given a fictional occupation, salary, spouse and family, student loan debt, credit card debt, and medical insurance payments. They then walk around to various table-top stations to “purchase” housing, transportation, food, clothing, household necessities, day care, and other needs.

This interactive activity will teach teens and young adults how to make financial decisions and give them a better understanding of the challenges of living on a budget. Teens and young adults will have to deal with a pushy “car salesperson” and a commission-based “realtor,” and weigh their wants versus their needs. Fortunately, the game also includes a “credit union” to help with their financial needs.

There’s even a “Fickle Finger of Fate” that will give some of the students unexpected “expenses” or “windfalls”—just like in real life.
