In this weekly blog post, the Curriculum team will highlight Just One Resource from our NGPF collection that maybe doesn't get the attention it deserves. Use it this week or bookmark it for later. 

[The Resource] PROJECT: Craft a Credit Score Game

The Gist: Students work in groups to create a board game, card game, or trivia game that they can play with their classmates and test each other about credit scores! 

The Best Parts:

  • Students work in groups and decide what type of game they want to create. 
  • They are challenged to incorporate 8 important points about credit scores into their game, such as the 5 factors that make up a credit score, credit utilization rate, and more. 
  • Students begin to formulate how their game works by answering a series of foundational questions. 
  • Finally, students actually build their games and play them with their classmates! You can even turn it into a competition to see which group comes up with the "best" credit score game!
