Does this curriculum exist?

Recommended Posts

So my 9yo did Pet Store Math and loved, loved, loved running his virtual pet store. He's now asking for something similar that does "all of life" -- insurance, rent/mortgage, groceries, etc. Does something like this exist? Ideally not just workbook lessons (although a workbook is OK) but something that has you run a virtual life, be responsible for your decisions, etc.?

I've been wanting something like that for years. I found something on ebay from the 80s that has elements of what I'm looking for, but I think I'm going to have to come up with my own thing put together from a bunch of resources. My son is older with Aspergers, and I want it to be very realistic. I emailed Sonya Shafer a few years ago about creating something similar to Pet Store Math for personal finance/life skills but she couldn't do it at that time. Maybe with enough interest she would consider it.
