An interactive classroom activity/exercise designed to build a lost skill “Manually Balancing your actual Checkbook Ledger”. This is a great tool for math class particularly if done without the use of a calculator. The activity is also perfect for the development of the needed skill of data verification in a digital world. The exercise, while not really a game, can be done quickly; in 10 minutes. One bonus of the site is the section titled ‘Ideas for Teachers”. This section is packed with content about money management.
