Elementary school students are curious about their world and how it works. They are good at classifying information, solving problems and finding the logic in a situation. This workshop uses two publications, FFFL K-2 and FFFL 3-5, which help accommodate this intellectual curiosity around National Standards in Math, ELA and Personal Finance without sacrificing any of the more playful aspects of learning. The active learning lessons use engaging strategies that enable students to develop the skills and understanding needed for sound financial decision-making. They also provide the stepping-stones to the more complicated world of personal finance they will later encounter. Visit the Financial Fitness for Life website to learn more about these resources and how they will enhance your curriculum.
