As the cost of college continues to outpace inflation, and the average student graduates with evergrowing student loan and credit card debt, college students face an increasingly greater “need to know” when it comes to personal finances.
High school students face a growing list of real personal finance decisions from purchasing a first vehicle, to saving for college, to signing a credit card agreement.

The following lessons provide guidance, lesson plans and activities for teachers interested in introducing children in pre-k, kindergarten, and first grade through sixth grade to early personal finance concepts. Lessons are broken up into pre-k to second grade and third grade to sixth grade. Children in grades three through six are capable of managing small amounts of money. They can divide their money into several categories, including “spend,” “save,” and “give.”
