This is a great webquest activity for Career and Financial Management, Personal Finance, and other high school business courses.
As part of a short unit I do on insurance, it’s a great exercise for students to apply the basics they’ve already learned about insurance (policies, deductibles, etc.) to something that can already affect them in their current lives – their ubiquitous cell phones!
Students research different cell phone carriers and the insurance on their devices, figuring out terms, deductibles, premiums, etc. and, taking the different costs and benefits into consideration, formulate an opinion whether insurance on their cell phones is a good deal, or not!
