Financial Fun: Real-Life Learning in the Integrated Classroom Economy

Financial literacy is a valuable life skill for young people and students from a young age can be exposed to sound habits by interweaving them in many aspects of the elementary classroom. However, this is a topic that often gets put on the back-burner. This webinar will provide participants with basic tools, strategies, and an outline for creating a sustainable classroom economy, within the elementary context, through an integrated classroom economy. The integrated classroom economy is a model of instruction that provides students with exposure to financial literacy and mathematics throughout the school day by weaving financial literacy material into the fabric of the classroom culture. By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to create their own integrated classroom economy.

Audience: Grades 1-8
