Financial Fitness For Life-Choosing and Using Financial Services

This lesson is adapted from Financial Fitness for Life Grades 6-8, Lesson 8, developed by the Council for Economic Education. The lesson helps students apply benefit/cost analysis to different financial services. Those financial services include electronic banking, checking and saving accounts, credit and debit accounts, ATM’s, pay day loans, and overdrafts. Students practice expository writing and employ mathematical reasoning in their benefit/cost analyses.
