About the game

Mind Your Own Budget provides a fun and hands-on way for students to build financial literacy, and strategically apply that knowledge to solve a variety of financial challenges. Through the game, students will encounter everyday financial tasks such as making and keeping a budget, paying recurring and emergency expenses, managing financial accounts and using financial instruments. Each scenario presents a new challenge and teaches new concepts while building on important budgeting basics.

Gameplay information

Instructor's Resources

The K20 Center supports instructors who effectively integrate Mind Your Own Budget into their classrooms by providing full implementation support, tiered technical support, and a handy Instructor’s Guide that will:

  • explain the gameplay mechanics,
  • give scenario overviews,
  • offer “quick strategies” for helping students develop their own gameplay styles,
  • and provide suggestions for classroom activities that can be used in conjunction with the game.

In addition to integration support, the K20 Center’s GamePortal allows instructors to view each individual student’s progress and time on scenarios as well as success/failure indicators.

Upon completion of the game, students can print out their own certificates of completion that can be signed by the students’ principal. This certificate counts toward the completion of the Personal Financial Literacy Passport as mandated by Oklahoma State Department of Education.
