Juegos de educación financiera

Play BlingO and learn

Bling-O

Suncoast Credit Union's version of Bingo gives students an opportunity to learn financial terms in a fun, interactive way. Students must create two lines in order to win the game, reinforcing the importance of always having a backup plan in life. During the game students learn that their free space becomes a dead spot, emphasizing the fact that nothing in life is free. The moderator may also draw a "pass left" or "pass right" chip to mix the game up, demonstrating that sometimes life is unpredictable.

Students try their luck on the Financial Wheel

Financial Wheel

The Financial Wheel provides students with the opportunity to build their financial vocabulary and acumen. Students take turn spinning the wheel and answering relevant financial management questions.

Are You Smarter Than a Crook?

Are you Smarter than a Crook?

Inspired by the game show Are You Smarter than A 5th Grader, students answer questions from 10 subject areas. Students have three forms of answer-assistance options (two cheats and a save), each available for use once per game.

Peek: The student is shown their teacher’s answer and may choose whether to go along with it or not; however, they must answer the question upon using this cheat.

Copy: The student is locked into using their teacher’s answer without being able to see it first. If the teacher is correct, the student is correct and advances up the money ladder. If the teacher is incorrect, the student loses the game.

Save:If the student answers incorrectly but their teacher is correct, they are credited with a correct answer.

If the student provides an incorrect answer (and is not saved), they "flunk out" and lose everything. They may choose to "drop out" at any point during the game, keeping the points they have acquired.
