This activity is aligned to the 2nd grade TEKS that teach children the importance of saving money and smart times to spend money vs. save it.
This two page activity will lead children through the process planning to make money ---> earning money ---> saving money or spending money. It also helps children decide what their wants and needs are.
In this packet students will:
-Determine the "flow" of money (Planning-->Earning-->Spending OR Saving)
-Brainstorm places and ways they spend money
-Brainstorm their wants and needs
-Brainstorm reasons to save and ways to save
-Determine a "want" and develop a savings plan for it
While this was created for second grade TEKS alignment, it can easily be adapted to extend "wants and needs" in younger grades or used as remediation in older grades.
