Financial Literacy Unit: Things Students Should Know Before They Graduate
$ This lesson covers a variety of topics including giving students a reality check about how much it costs to live on their own, credit card debt, car and student loans, creating a budget, how to write a check, how banks work, compounding interest and the Rule of 72. The lesson does requires internet access. After students complete the lesson, they complete a spending and earning journal to help them track what they spend and earn.
