Courses and lesson plans
Whether you are teaching young children or teenagers, Hands on Banking resources can help you prepare, extend and supplement your lessons as well as assess student knowledge and progress. Many of the lessons and course modules are designed to meet educational standards such as Common Core State Standards1 and the National Standards for Personal Finance Education from Jump$tart Coalition and the Council for Economic Education. Explore Hands on Banking and help instill knowledge about spending, saving, giving back and more.
Help kids learn all about money – where it comes from, how to earn it, and how to keep it safe. And help them figure out the difference between a “need” and “want”.
Teens know that money is fun to get and spend. But if they learn some money basics, they’ll have more options. Help them start saving and boosting their earning power.
Help high school students start their financial lives smart and strong. These lessons cover school loans, saving and investing, balance a budget, and developing strong credit.
“I LOVE the detailed lessons with engaging worksheets that scaffold student learning.”
Suzanne K, Grade 4 teacher, NY
