The Reality Store is a game based on real life situations. The game was started, and sponsored, by the Business Professional Women’s. The students will draw from a hat to decide marital status, and number of children and will visit different tables to experience a variety of real life situations. This game is intended to simulate “real life” in a fun way and get students thinking about transition into adulthood.
