Students participate in a webquest where they have to budget for life as an independent adult.  This project asks them to choose a job, a home, and an automobile. They will find out about taxes, insurance, as well as other expenses such as food, gas, utilities and leisure/fun activities.  In the end they will create a final product displaying all they have learned.
