Needs and Wants Debate Lesson

An oldie but goodie. None of us ‘needs’ the latest and greatest smart phone, but we do need ways to communicate with others. Learning the distinction between the two helps students learn to reframe their language around the things they want.

Helping people distinguish between Needs and Wants is critical when you’re teaching them how to make wiser financial choices with their money. Learning to use their Living Jar for their Needs and their Savings and Play Jars for their Wants is important.

Our Money Game Wants and Needs Activity is in the form of a debate. You can be as silly or serious as you want to be with this debate. I love to put on my purple wizard cape and have my ‘magic’ wand handy to summon the person who wants to talk up to the front to state their case…so to speak.
