PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

FINANCIAL LITERACY - The Money Trail - Part 5 - Budgeting, Manage Your Spending - presents the need for financial goals, developing good credit rating, saving for emergencies and unexpected expenses, and to limit spending by creating and maintaining a budget. A budget will help develop good money management skills in order to achieve identified financial goals. Activities and answer keys are included in this unit.

Why should students know how to budget their money? What is the best way to handle needs and unlimited wants? Is budgeting a lifelong money management skill? Are you required to offer financial literacy to your secondary students, but don’t know where to begin?

Then, Financial Literacy: The Money Trail Series is just what you are looking for! In each part of the series, students will develop a working knowledge of the financial decisions that they need to make now and in the future. The Financial Literacy Parts are reinforcement activities using current research stats that parallel the standards. They are not intended as stand-alone units rather they are interactive activities between the teacher and students. The Money Trail Series supports the National Standards for Financial Literacy in the following: Earning Income, Buying Goods and Services, Saving Money, Using Credit, Investing, Protecting and Insuring.
