This activity helps students see the difference in saving different amounts of money at over similar time periods. Most students we talk with are very nearsighted when saving money, and this will help them see how fast savings add up over the course of several weeks to a year. It will also help students create goals in saving to help purchase a "big ticket item." Students have different tables to enter their weekly savings, and after they complete they will graph the savings on a unlabeled graph, serving as a visual to see the different growth rates over time.
