My students are finding it difficult to balance the budget.  The feeling is that everything should be kept in the budget because all of it contributes to the security and well-being of their citizens.  Every time a student makes a suggestion there are other students pointing out the consequences.  Their frustration echoes the frustrations of government leaders all over the county, state and country.  I am eager to see what they decide to do and how they expect to raise revenue for next year. 


  1. It is very interesting to get an idea of how balancing budgets works. This is kind of like a fun but at times difficult simulation. Thanks Mrs. Slaviero! Hope to continue doing fun assignments like this that help me understand these kinds of concepts.
