What's In a Day?

The interactive game that is played in the classroom is the core of the day's events. Gear UP! is a fun and entertaining game that helps teach basic financial concepts by encouraging children to get involved by answering questions, crafting budget strategies, and cheering for outcomes. From this unique game, students learn about smart spending, and saving and budgeting through a fun and interactive game that's based on the concept of owning a bicycle.

After the game has been played, a question and answer session is held to review the concepts presented and talk about what happened to each team as a result of their choices in budgeting, saving, and spending.

Lastly, both volunteers and students sadly say goodbye and thank you.

 

"Accounting for Kids Day has opened up a new world of opportunity for careers in life to our students."

-Mary A Ronan, Former Superintendent Cincinnati Public School District
