- Banking Your Money: Through simple calculations and some online research, students learn what interest is, how to calculate it, and the importance of saving your money starting at a young age.
- Evaluating Investment Alternatives: Advancing beyond the basic savings accounts, students learn about different types of investment options like education savings accounts, Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), and brokerage accounts, and the risks and withdrawal stipulations associated with them.
- My Work, My Future: It’s one thing to have a dream. But getting where you want to go in life takes hard work and planning. In this activity, students think about their dream jobs, and the steps along the way – and the financial considerations – it will take to get there.
