Financial Literacy Series Part I: Check and Balances

Scholars (9th-12th graders) will  focus on features and costs associated with checking accounts. Scholars will learn about overdraft protection options and how to record and  calculate checking account transactions which include debit cards, checks, transfers, fees, and deposits.

Real-life transactions will be learned through playing a game while keeping a running balance in a check register and  keeping track of their money. Scholars will compare the features and costs of specific checking accounts offered by four different financial institutions and decide which choice is best for each given fictional character.
