Product Description
This set includes everything you need to teach financial literacy to middle or high school students.

This is set up with an option of a huge consumer math and personal finance "fun" day in which students rotate through stations, but it also works well as a 1 or 2 week long unit spread throughout normal classroom periods. Please see the preview for more information about the options.

As they progress through this material, students make college decisions, get paychecks, buy or rent homes and vehicles, purchase insurance, and much more. They develop personal budgets and even do a simplified version of taxes at the end.

The unit includes information cards to display or distribute, a booklet filled with application questions, follow-up worksheets for each lesson, and much more. A financial planning sheet and vocabulary guide are completed a little at a time as the unit progresses. Extensions are also included.

If all "phases" and extensions are completed, this unit covers all TEKS financial standards for both 7th and 8th grade (some content may be challenging for 7th graders who are not yet proficient with percents and exponents). This unit is also perfect for high school students grades 9-12.

Please see the preview file for details.
