Student reflection: this is to demonstrate what the student has learned from this project, as well as what his/her short and long-term financial goals are for the future.
Interviews: students are to interview one adult from their school, and one parent or other family member. The student asks these interviewees questions about personal finance, and must then type up their responses into a short reflection.
Needs vs. Wants Worksheet: students work in groups to analyze various items as either needs or wants.
