    Bundle Description

    Teaching personal finance and consumer math to middle and high school students can be difficult because the amount of quality resources that are practical and relevant are hard to find. Schools need to do a better job of teaching students to be financially literate and better consumers. Consumer math can be very confusing particularly for students who have very little experience. That's what this GROWING bundle is all about!

    In the Lemonade Stand Project, students will set up a successful lemonade stand using the Lemonade Stand Game online (link provided). Students will determine how much it will cost to make the lemonade, how they will make the lemonade and how much to charge for each cup. The project materials help to guide students to understand how to make the best business decisions and to track their progress. They are able to use their own data tracker to see what works, what didn't and how to make adjustments to improve profits. It is a great way to learn about the fundamentals of economics and becoming an entrepreneur.

    The Credit Card Project provides a simple look at how credit cards work, how credit card companies make money, how payments work, and how to use them responsibly. The file includes a project with worksheets, links to videos about credit cards, information about credit cards, a sample credit card statement and a rubric to grade the project. It is set up with different activities so that the project can be completed at home or at school depending on your preference. This is a great introduction to credit cards for any student!

    The Savings Account Activities provides a simple look at how savings accounts work, how banks make money and how to calculate interest. The file includes worksheets, links to a video about bank accounts, a sample bank statement, sample deposit and withdrawal slips, a glossary of important terms and questions about simple and compound interest. It is set up with different activities so that they can be completed at home or at school depending on your preference. This is a great introduction to banks and savings accounts!

    The Earning Statement includes an example of a realistic earnings statement along with 18 questions regarding the understanding of how to read one and an answer key. This is a great way to help students understand taxes, social security, income, retirement, etc.

    The Room Renovation Project allows students to put some basic math concepts to use in a real-life project. Students will use arithmetic, spatial reasoning, budgeting concepts, consumer math, technology and organizational skills to create a room remodel. Students will draw a blueprint of their room, select paint color, select a new floor and fill up their room with furniture all while staying under budget! They will even have an opportunity to create a 3D model of their remodeled room.

    The Checking Account product contains many activities meant for middle school and high school students. It includes activities to help students understand parts of a check, debit cards, how to write checks, how to endorse and void checks, how to keep a running ledger and even an online ATM simulator to practice using an ATM!

    The Buy a Car Project contains many activities meant for middle school and high school students. Consumer math can be very confusing particularly for students who have very little experience.

It explores the different aspects of car buying including searching for a car online, getting a car loan, the advantages of a new vs used car and the true costs of owning a car for 5 years.
