Financial literacy is important, but how do you get kids engaged?

We can all agree that financial literacy is important, but it’s hard to teach kids about the importance of saving, budgeting and investing before they make money of their own. So how on earth do we grab the attention of uninterested kids? Make money talk fun!

Sometimes classroom lesson plans are hard to stand, but if activities are involved, the kids will be, too. For fun classroom ideas that will spark the interest of kids, visit The Money Godmother’s Blog. From crossword puzzles to duct tape wallets, many free downloads are available.

Another great resource the Federal Reserve of Chicago offers is the downloadable workbook, Econ Explorers. This workbook takes students on many different adventures while exploring different aspects of financial literacy.

Check out some of these resources to engage your students and make money talk fun.
