A Fun Lesson to Start your Personal Finance Class

A Fun Lesson to Start your Personal Finance Class

I like to start the first week of school with a lesson designed to get students thinking about their personal and financial goalsWonderful Life”.

Wonderful Life is a fun, interactive project that gives students a chance to get to know each other while creating a presentation that reveals their goals regarding career, wages, and lifestyle. It also sharpens their communication and presentation skills. And as a culminating activity each student presents their project to the class. It’s a great first lesson. 

I like starting the class off with this assignment because it eases the students (and the teacher) into the class, and it is a fun way for everyone to get to know each other.  It gives the teacher a chance to spend some one-on-one time with students.  It also sets the stage for the rest of the course.

This is an outstanding lesson, not only for personal finance, but for any class where the objective is for students to introduce themselves to the class and talk about their goals and interests.

Over 2000 teachers have downloaded this lesson from Teachers Pay Teachers.  If you have not already grabbed it, here is the link...Wonderful Life.
