Grades 7-8

Financial Beginnings is excited to debut its Financial Framings program for middle school students. This new program provides finance education while framing personal financial decisions within the larger local and global economies. Curriculum is taught through an interactive, game-like format, which engages students by presenting real-world economic scenarios.

The introductory lesson can be taught in a period between 1-2 hours. The introduction walks students through the evolution of currency and the economy.  Students then learn about the circular flow of money and how personal and economic situations can affect the flow of money.  After providing a foundational knowledge for students, the educator can then utilize scenario cards to apply the information learned to the circular flow of money chart.
