Lesson Transcript
Instructor: Allison Tanner
College is a time of change for students and helping them to refresh their time management skills is important. This lesson covers two interactive activities to assist college students in better juggling their time.

The Big Picture

By the time students get to college they should know basic time management skills. Meaning, they should understand scheduling time and making lists. However, college brings on new and unique challenges for young adults. This is likely the first time in their lives, without their parent's reinforcement, that they are in charge of:

  • Waking themselves up
  • Getting to school
  • Making food
  • Finishing homework
  • Getting to work


The activities in this lesson are 2-fold. Activity one focuses on engaging students. This will get them thinking about time management and how they can and should spend their time. Activity two will help students to practically manage their time by scheduling their daily activities. Using both an integrative and a practical approach, you can incorporate the diverse learning styles of your students and further engage them in the learning process.

Activity One

Your students won a unique lottery. Each person won $86,400. They have to spend all of the money. The money can be used for any expense, interest, gifts, or whatever they want, but they have to spend it all. If they don't spend the money it goes back to the lottery and no one can use it. They have two minutes to decide how they are going to spend their money. Once the two minutes have passed you can ask students how they decided to spend their money.

  • What did they spend the money on?
  • Why did they choose to spend the money there?
