I worked with HS age students in the past and primarily focused on a life skills curriculum. Everyone in the class had a weekly job, kept a checkbook and earned "money" for their job. Each week they got paid and had to enter the deposit into their checkbook. They also had to pay me "rent" for their desk and chair.
We also did calendar every morning: month, day, year, pattern, birthdays, time, counted the days of schools using straws (and put them into groups of 5s, 10s when possible so students could practice counting that way).
I don't know if your students would be able to do any of this, but you could modify this.
Hope this helps!
