Hi Kenesha! this idea might be in the same vein as The Amazing Empathy Race , (an empathy game idea) check it out, she started a google doc building out the idea, maybe this is an idea you'd want to collaborate on or use it for more possibilities within your classroom!

This sounds like it could be a lot of fun, and really engaging. Have you done this before? If so, can you share what 'real work experiences' you were able to facilitate? Seems like financial health would be an obvious one, but I'd love to hear more!

Is this a single lesson, or an overall classroom procedure? I see both from this? I challenge board.. or ongoing games! I can wait to see where you go!

Hi Kanesha! Love this idea! I'd love to see you build it out a bit. What sorts of real-life experiences do you imagine? How would these experiences help them view situations differently?

Let me know if I can help!
