Product Description
This activity is designed to help students investigate how credit cards work--their benefits and pitfalls. The first part of the activity incorporates a Frontline documentary on credit cards (web address for this video provided) The second part of the activity asks kids to compare and analyze actual credit card applications. We had students bring in applications they received in the mail or picked up at a store with all of their personal information removed. The third part of the activity includes two prompts for written reflection. This is one of the activities from the Financial Literacy: First Steps unit.

"Financial Literacy: First Steps" is designed to develop students' basic knowledge of some of the life skills our students will need when they deal with the real economic world. Our unit includes personal budgeting, needs versus wants, wages, banking, taxes, and protecting one's personal financial resources. At the conclusion of the study, students will know the finances of employment, how to apply reliable information and systematic decision-making to personal financial decisions, and recognize and accept differences among peers' values and attitudes about money.
