Lesson: Basics of banking Edit

Begin by asking students what they think about money. This should be a discussion that you lead.

Draw a brain map on the board to illustrate how the conversation progresses. Start with a central bubble in the middle (what is money?) with lines and bubbles leading out from it including other concepts and ideas we will cover in the discussion.

You can ask prompts such as:

->What is money?

->What did people use before money? Explain bartering

->Where does money come from? Explain that the government prints money through the treasury

->Why do we need it?

->How do you feel about it?

->What was the last thing you bought?

->What was the last thing your mom or dad bought?

->Why did you buy it? How did you get the money to buy it?

->Was the item you purchased a want or a need?

Hahahah

-> HOPE Corps volunteer tip: If students offer an answer that isn’t quite right, try to lead them in theright direction through prompts.

From here, distinguish between a want and a need. Give them examples of each—for instance, a bus pass is a need because people need it to go to school or work, while a new video game is a want because students don’t need it to survive. Have students brainstorm about the two words, and write their concepts on the board.

You can approach this in a number of ways, including

->Write down each student’s purchase on the board and,after you’ve discussed it, decide whether it is a want or a need. Label W or N next to each item.

->Have students break up into groups of 3 or 4 to decide whether each item is a want or need. Visit each group to discuss and make sure that they’re on the right track.

->Have students add up whether the majority of things that they’ve bought have been wants or needs. Talk about how their needs are provided for. Make a list of all the items that are needs in their lives (these should include things like house or apartment/somewhere to live; food; water; transportation; safety (such as through having insurance or having an emergency preparedness kit). When talking about the emergency preparedness kit, mention BOOF’s Emergency Financial First Aid Kit (EFFAK), which helps to organize and file key financial records, legal documents, and household files in case there’s an emergency.

->You can also talk about how some needs—such as being loved or having friends and family—cannot be bought, and other needs—such as food and shelter—can.

->Have students break up into small groups. Provide them with old magazines or newspapers. Have them cut out different pictures or words and glue/tape these words or mages onto separate pieces of papers. One paper should be labeled want and one should be labeled need

Want: mp3 player                       Need: health insurance

->HOPE Corps volunteer tip: You can’t be everywhere at once — encourage your students to discuss a problemas a group to see if they can determine the answer themselves.

After this, discuss how we get money. Distinguish between money that you earn and money that you are given, such as an allowance or a gift. You can also discuss money that students’ parents get through credit cards or a loan to purchase big-ticket items, such as cars and homes.
