Students love money! Honestly, who doesn’t? However, money can be slow to earn and quick to spend. When students are in school, they don’t always realize this. Some just ask for money and receive what they need, while others have to work for it. No matter where students are financially, they must learn about budgets while in school. Thankfully, the Budgeting Unit is the perfect way to teach students one of the most critical skills they will use in life!
This 9+ day budgeting unit will enable your students to learn all about real-world skills with the help of a supportive teacher! Since students must learn about being economically responsible, there are amazing hands-on lessons. Students will be happy to learn about money management in a way that will lead them to build critical thinking skills!
When learning about money, students may not realize how it controls so many aspects and decisions. Luckily, the Budgeting Unit includes essential objectives to ensure students know how to balance their budgets properly. Specifically, they will look into living paycheck to paycheck compared to the cost of their ideal lifestyle. This is a great way to teach them about having a salary that supports the budget they want. Since life always throws curveballs, they will learn about poverty, how a lack of budgeting impacts a family and potential issues with a budget. Ultimately, students will learn how important it is to budget and gain critical insight into how to do this!
