1 Family Economics & Financial Education A Collaborative Project Among:

2 Financial Statistics Puzzle Prepare puzzle pieces  Type financial statistics using a large font and landscape layout, type one statistic per page  Print each statistic on different colored paper  Cut each page into 4-7 pieces, creating a separate puzzle for each piece of paper Play activity  Give each participant a piece of a puzzle  Direct participants to find others that have the same color paper  Once they find everyone with the same colored paper, the group must put their puzzle together to reveal the financial statistic

3 Facilitation Tips  Once the statistics have been formed they can be posted on butcher paper. Give participants the opportunity to walk around and give initial feedback on the statistics  Have participants display their statistics in different areas of the school or community  Do fact or fiction statistics instead of all fact encouraging discussion among participants

4 Four on the Floor  If a worksheet is in front of a participant, he/she must answer one of the questions and write down the response  Then he/she crinkles the worksheet into a ball and tosses it across the room  The participant closest to the worksheet must pick it up, answer one of the remaining questions, crinkle it into a ball, and toss it across the room  This continues until all questions have been answered on the worksheet or until a certain time limit has been reached; because the questions are open ended, the activity can go on for as long as seems appropriate for the group  After the activity is finished, have the last participant answer a question and keep the worksheet  Choose one question to discuss first and have the participants read the corresponding responses aloud  Discuss the questions and answers

5 Facilitation Tips  Create many sheets with many different questions, thus having many different questions being tossed around the room at the same time rather than having the same four questions being tossed around  Have participants toss the paper to the center of the room and retrieve a different one than the one they threw

6 Project Mission “Provide educators with no-cost curriculum materials and the skills and confidence to effectively teach family economics and finance”

7 Curriculum Development  Curriculum developed by educators for educators.  The team of educators developed, taught, and evaluated curriculum materials –The educators were part of the project’s Master Teacher program; Educators complete a week-long training, use the curricula in their classrooms and provide continued support to FEFE through evaluation and development of new materials and newly trained family finance educators

8 Curriculum Development  Aligned to state and national standards  Up-to-date  Designed using a family based approach and the multiple intelligences model, in a ready-to-teach format requiring minimal educator preparation.  Lessons may be taught independently, in units, or as a semester course “Take Charge of Your Finances”

9 Curriculum Types Over 100 Lesson Plans!  Take Charge of Your Finances –Approximately 60 lesson plans designed for students grades  Get Ready to Take Charge of Your Finances –Approximately 15 lesson plans designed for students grades 7-9, or those with limited financial knowledge  Finance Simulations –Applied assessments for both Take Charge and Get Ready curriculums  Bulletin Boards –Create a positive learning environment  Active Learning Tools –Quick activities to introduce a lesson, review content learned and/or keep students actively engaged  Enhancement Tools –Project based learning  Workshop Guides –The most important content condensed into a 60 min workshop format

10 Beach Ball Toss  The first time the beach ball is tossed use a red marker to write on the beach ball examples of expenses  Continue until the facilitator says stop  The second time the beach ball is tossed, use a black marker to write examples of income on the beach ball  At the end of the activity have one participant read off the different types of expenses and the different types of incomes indicated on the beach ball

11 Facilitation Tips  Place masking tape on the beach ball and instruct participants to write on the tape to allow the ball to be used multiple times  Use the same color marker to have participants at the end of the activity review expenses and income without reading each based upon the color it was written in

12 Attitudes about money  5 different statements have been hung around the room  Instruct participants on their sticky notes to write the first thing that came to mind when they heard the statement  Instruct participants to go and hang their sticky note by the appropriate poster  Discuss with participants the statements and give some examples of what was written on the sticky notes

13 Facilitation Tips  Group Activity –Have groups share with each other what their responses were to the individual questions  Individually –Hand out an Attitudes About Money worksheet A1 to each participant  Brainstorm sheets –Can also use butcher paper for the participants to attach their sticky notes to, or they can write directly on the butcher paper  Educator led discussion –The educator will read the questions and discuss answers aloud with the participants

14 CURRICULUM DESIGN & CODING

15 Ready-to-Teach Design  Lesson Plan –Introduction All background information –Body Recommended step-by-step facilitation –Conclusion Activity based review –Materials List of necessary supplies –Resources Reference lesson plans, documents, Web sites and more for additional information

17 Curriculum Coding  Designed to identify curriculum materials in each unit and lesson plan  Code appears in the upper-right corner of all pages  Understanding the coding system is critical to effectively navigating the Web site  Helpful when asking the FEFE staff questions to reference the code  Refer to Curriculum Coding System document

38 MoneyWorld Squares  Choose 9 participants to be the activity board Activity Board Diagram StandStand Stand Sit on Chair Sit on chair Sit on chair Sit on Floor Sit on floor Sit on floor

39 MoneyWorld Squares  The first team selects a square  Facilitator reads a question to the person in a square –The square answers the question (not the team) –After the square answers, the team chooses to agree or disagree with the square’s response

40 MoneyWorld Squares  If the square answers correctly and the team agrees with the answer or if the square answers incorrectly and the team disagrees with the answer, the team gets that square –The square then holds the letter, X or O, that corresponds with the team in front of them and the play moves to the next team  If the square answers correctly and the team disagrees with the answer or if the square answers incorrectly and the team agrees with the answer, the team does not get that square and play moves to the next team –If a team does not get a square, the square is not automatically won by the other team

41 Facilitation Tips  If there are not enough participants to be a activity board the individuals can play the activity by hanging the X and O cards on the board and playing a activity of tic tac toe as they get answers correct  If there are enough participants for multiple activity boards designate one individual to be the host with the questions and answers to help facilitation
