The 11 activity units are:
  1. Bills, Budgets, and Bank Accounts. In this activity, students must work with every aspect of “Cary Cash’s” personal finances, including maintaining his checking account, paying bills, making purchases, using credit and insurance, budgeting, and much more.
  2. Buying the Basics. Your students undoubtedly already spend a lot of their money on food and clothing. So, whether it’s fast food or fine dining, fads or fashions, or just plain grocery shopping, these activities will teach your students to get the most for their money.
  3. My Budget. Most of us have limited incomes, so we need to learn to budget well. These activities will teach your students the budgeting skills they’ll need so they don’t run short of money before the end of the month.
  4. My Credit. Credit is part of our daily lives, from credit cards to car loans and home mortgages. By doing these activities, your students will learn the nuts and bolts of using “today’s” credit, including the 2009 Credit Card Accountability Act.
  5. My Insurance. Insurance is a necessity we don’t like to think about or spend our money on. These activities will teach students to understand their health, life, and property insurance so they know what to expect when the unexpected happens.
  6. My Money. Money makes the world go round, and your students must learn how to make their money work. From checking accounts to savings accounts, to stocks and bonds, these activities will teach them to spend, save, and invest their money wisely.
  7. My Paycheck. What we make is not what we get to keep, and that is just one of the many lessons your students will learn from these activities about getting paid.
  8. My Place. The reproducible activities here cover every aspect of renting an apartment, living with roommates, and buying a home, letting students do much more than just read and answer questions.
  9. My Wheels. Today’s consumers are being offered a variety of transportation choices, from traditional gasoline-powered cars to hybrids and all-electrics. The activities in this unit encourage students to use all of their skills.
  10. Shopping Smart. Students spend money daily on the things they want and need. These activities will teach them to shop smart so they get the most for their money.
  11. Trivia Time. These trivia games are not trivial. They’ll teach your students the fundamentals of personal finance while they compete against each other.
