Financial Literacy Lessons

Guest speaker Katie O'Donnell, with Everfi, a computer-based financial literacy program, spoke to middle school students in Danielle Bartl's Family and Consumer Science (FACS) class about financial literacy. She talked with students about the difference between a need versus a want when making a purchase, budgeting, and bank accounts. Students had the opportunity to use EverFi to become the mayor of their own town to make decisions and learn about the financial responsibilities of their town. FACS students had just completed a money management unit.
