In this lesson students will explore the similiarities and differences of banks and credit unions. They will compare interest rates, services, fees, etc.
Students will also use an online car loan calculator and mortgage calculator to experiment on how much interest would cost and how long it would take to pay off the loans.
At the end of the lesson students will use their prior knowledge, and the information from the webquest to complete a "double bubble" comparing and contrasting banks and credit unions.
Students will complete the assignment by giving their opinion on whether they would choose to open up an account at a bank or a credit union.
