Fun, Safe, and Interactive, Bite of Reality is a two-hour, hands-on simulation that appeals to teens/adults while giving them a taste of real-world financial realities. Participants are given a fictional occupation, salary, spouse and family, student loan debt, credit card debt, and medical insurance payments. They then walk around to various table-top stations to “purchase” housing, transportation, food, clothing, household necessities, day care, and other needs. Fortunately, the game also includes a “credit union” to help with their financial needs.
This interactive activity will teach participants how to make financial decisions and give them a better understanding of the challenges of living on a budget. They will have to deal with a pushy “car salesperson” and a commission-based “realtor,” and weigh their wants versus their needs. There’s even a “Fickle Finger of Fate” that will give some of the students unexpected “expenses” or “windfalls”—just like in real life.
