I've created 12 sorting cards with scenarios about when to, or when not to use credit (borrow money).
This follows along with the new 2014 math TEKS for Texas. Personal Financial Literacy 3.9D
This sorting activity can be done whole group or small group. I've also included with the 12 cards a worksheet that can be used with the cards that fall into the "credit" category. The worksheet has student find the difference in amount they need, calculate interest, and find out what the final cost with be.
You can even turn that into a center.
Other Personal Finance items I have created are:
Avalibility and Scarcity Of Resources
I have a few other money projects that are larger and take more than one class period. They often last 1-2 weeks. If you are interested they are:
