Students are given their own house and room, as well as their own character. This ensures a connection and recognition when they return to the Moneyville universe. A special area designed for children from 8-9 years of age enables them to learn about finances on a more abstract level. For example, they must make a number of decisions that can affect their total finances during a year.
The only thing left to do is to begin exploring and learn about money, finances and basic mathematics!
Your students can visit:
- The apple booth, where they can make money by gathering apples and selling apple juice.
- The post office, where they can sort packages and make money by helping out.
- The city gate, where they can earn money by helping to paint.
- Karen's shop, where students can purchase items for their personal rooms and clothing for their characters.
- A sorcerer who knows where a golden treasure is hidden! If students can answer his questions correctly, he reveals the location of the treasure.
- The Wish Jar, where the children can save the things they would like to save up to buy.
- The family game is specially designed for children from 8-9 years of age. Here, children create an imaginary family, choose their home and whether they are to have a car or bicycles. They must pay expenses every month – including unexpected expenses – and they must save up for holidays and celebrations.
But there needs to be time for recess as well! The Time Machine is a sanctuary where the only objective is to have fun. Your students can:
- Journey to ancient Rome: A puzzle where they construct buildings such as the Colosseum.
- Journey to ancient Egypt: Where they help to paint and decorate a room in the Cheops Pyramid.
- Journey to the Middle Ages: Where they can shoot a bow and arrow.
- Journey back to the time of dinosaurs: Here students must find dinosaur eggs buried underground by collecting hearts, pushing rocks and avoiding dangerous creatures.
