PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an agenda for the hands-on activities and real-life application lessons in a 4-6 week Financial Literacy: First Steps unit. Included in the agenda you will find notes and homework assignments that coordinate with the daily activities. The activities identified on this agenda are available under other Financial Literacy: First Steps postings.

"Financial Literacy: First Steps" is designed to develop students' basic knowledge of some of the life skills they will need when they deal with the real economic world. Our unit includes personal budgeting, needs versus wants, wages, banking, taxes, and protecting one's personal financial resources. At the conclusion of the study, students will know the finances of employment, how to apply reliable information and systematic decision-making to personal financial decisions, and recognize and accept differences among peers' values and attitudes about money.

HI Karee,
I want to use your materials to work with a group of 12-18 yr old girls who are in a detention center. Can you tell me what I should purchase first, second, third because I am not sure where to begin so I can see the full program. I have seen the separate worksheets but need to overall picture. Thanks, Marg

You can purchase the unit agenda and decide (based on topic) what activities you would like to do with your group of girls. The order can be changed around based on your needs and the students' background knowledge.

Thanks,

Karee
