Are your elementary school students prepared to make
sound economic decisions in the ways of income, spending,
saving, borrowing, investing and managing money? The
Financial Fitness for Life materials were written based on
real-world concepts, and let teachers present them in a
manner that reinforces learning through practice, helping
prepare students for life beyond the classroom.
The Grades 3-5 Student Workbook was designed to be
used with Financial Fitness for Life’s Teacher Guide to teach
personal fi nance. You will measure your students’ progress in
four themes of personal fi nance: earning an income, saving,
spending and credit, and money management. Between
these four themes there are 16 lessons, each focusing on a
different topic and ranging in length from one 45-minute
period to a week’s worth of classroom experience.
