Clay Piggy: Teaching Financial Literacy in A Virtual World

Now LGS students can earn, save and spend money on cars, toys, houses and more – just like their parents.

All in the virtual world of Clay Piggy.

The Clay Piggy virtual gaming environment has stores looking to hire talented kids. Students apply for a job at a shop or company, and then begin earning money. The more they work the faster they get to the next level, and the higher the level the higher the income.

Students can open checking and savings accounts, and learn how to write checks or use a debit card. Money is used for food, rent and buying cool things.

Students can also interact with each other in the virtual environment and travel together to the amusement park or other places – using the money they worked hard to earn!
