Personal Financial Literacy

The very last math unit that I taught this past year was Personal Financial Literacy (if you don’t teach in Texas then you would refer to this as Economics!).  I had ZERO resources to pull from.  I had ZERO energy to make anything new.  So, I taught using our math book (insert HUGE gasp here).  It wasn’t horrible, but it was soooo short of awesome-sauce.  So, I knew what my first summer project would be!
I set out to make some fun activities for my future kiddos, and Joelle helped me a lot!  She loves to cut and color, so she is the perfect little helper!
I also know that whether you are teaching this as an Economics or Math unit that vocabulary is KEY!  So, I included a lot of financial vocabulary in the unit!  There are also several vocabulary activities to help your students really learn those terms!
Here’s a fun freebie I posted in the fall!  It goes great with teaching money and financial literacy!
