Sumter County Middle School students in Ms. Crystal Cheek’s 7th grade Family and Consumer Science class have been working on the standard related to identifying financial skills needed to develop independence.  In the activity pictured, students rolled dice to find out their income (gross and net), profession, childcare and housing costs, as well as utilities and car payments.  Students cut out pictures of their homes and cars, and calculated their budgets.  This real-world experience was eye-opening for the students as they discovered some of the responsibilities associated with being an adult, as well as the relationship between education, income, and lifestyle.
