The Johnny Money Online Game is a new free activity designed for students to learn what it’s like to start and operate their own small business.
It appears pretty engaging, though I have to admit that I personally get confused easily by anything more complicated than “Pong.” There’s some audio support for the text, but I suspect that it’s only accessible to advanced English Language Learners or native-speakers.
Nevertheless, I’m posting it here because one of the organizations it’s associated with, Practical Money Skills For Life, made it on one of my other “The Best…” lists, The Best Sites For Students To Create Budgets.
For more accessible economics activities, also check-out The Best Sites For Learning Economics & Practical Money Skills.
I’ll be posting the link to Johnny Money on my Social Studies page for mainstream students under Economics.
