Please find the grade level for your class.

Savings and Investing Blitz
Grade 9-12 / EconEdLink: In this game, students will be asked a series of multiple choice questions. The longer it takes to answer, the less the question is worth. If they take too long, it won't be worth anything!

Cards, Cars, and Currency: Lesson 2-Credit Cards / Lesson 4-Interest / Lesson 5-Savings
Grade 9-12 / St Louis Fed: Students participate in a discussion of the general features of a $1 bill. They learn that although currency is valued, people often “throw currency away” as a result of poor financial decisions and the lack of financial knowledge. Following the discussion, the students play a game in which they attempt to “keep the currency,” working in pairs to answer 20 true-or-false questions about credit cards, debit cards and purchasing a car. From this game, which serves as a pretest for subsequent lessons, the students learn that financial literacy is important in keeping currency.
