This set of lessons includes activities that prompt students to discuss the concept of success generally, and also in the context of using money wisely, with a balanced awareness of self and others, home and community.

Attitudes about money make a difference

  attitude

Money is taught in school, but it is often limited to its identification and later calculations. One of the key drivers of money in society are the attitudes that inform decision-making. For this reason, it is critical that we engage students in discussions that relate to how attitudes towards money are formed and the possible impacts of those attitudes.

This set of lessons includes activities that prompt students to discuss attitudes about money at both a personal and a societal perspective.
