This lesson is the first day of a seven-day unit on The Financial Sector that was designed using national standards from the Council for Economic Education. It is designed to be the introductory day for this unit, meaning it takes about 60 minutes, but the lesson can easily be extended to 80 or 90 minutes.

Enjoy!
