If you are teaching students about the economy, budgeting, debt, or other topics of "money" - don't miss this site! Highlights include six programs of study (Money Management, Borrowing, Earning Power, Investing, Financial Services, and Insurance). Each program has a 40-page, stand-alone Student Guide (PDF files). There are also articles and interactives. The interactives are incredibly useful (although they are called Games). The Games include "Live to Work? Or Work to Live," "Education: Worth It?," "Paper or Plastic," and several others. Another great feature of this site is that it is also available in Spanish.

In the Classroom

There are many ways to incorporate this website into your plans and help your students prepare for their financial futures. Download entire units to use with your class. There are countless activities presented with each unit. An economics class could focus on one new unit each week (or even month). Demonstrate the Games on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Have students try out the "real life" economics interactives on their own computers. Download (and print) copies of the unit. Have students work in cooperative learning groups to read through the units and complete the activities.
