Games to Test Your Life Skills

It’s a big world out there.  But you’re not alone!

Did you know that we offer some fun Life Skills activities that can help you build confidence facing some of your daily challenges without worrying about the real-world consequences? These fun, game-like activities let you help a character successfully complete a specific task.  If you make a mistake, the activity gives you hints about what to try next and lets you keep trying until you get it right — all from the safety of your computer.

You can practice using an ATM without having to be at the machine.  You can try your hand at following directions for Measuring, Mixing, and Baking – without wasting your own food.  You can Compare Labels at a virtual store and scan the Grocery Shelves for the items you need.  You can even try to Count Change and give someone the right amount of Cash Back.

Check out some of these activities and let us know what you think.  We love hearing from you!

  1. gail41-If you were working on one of our tutorials – look for the Extras box on the lower right side of the page. That should have a “Take the test” link.

  2. Hi Jeni, I went through the first lesson and took the test, I scored very low. I was asked if I wanted to take the test again and I didn’t. I went back and spent more time and read everything this time. Now I can’t find out how to take the test again. Thank you,
