Understanding how money works, from how to maintain a budget to the basics of investment, is crucial to both surviving and thriving in the modern world. Personal finance courses are now required in more than half the United States, although many students don’t get an adequate amount of financial education in school. The results are alarmingly evident when you look at the statistics: a survey from the National Financial Educators Council shows that 38% of individuals lost at least $500 in 2022 due to a lack of financial literacy—including 15% who said it set them back by $10,000 or more. A lack of financial literacy can lead to bad credit, excessive debt, and even bankruptcy or foreclosure. Don’t let your students become statistics. Give them a solid head start on finance with Infobase’s streaming video platforms, eBooks, and award-winning databases. Table of Contents Looking for Media on Financial Literacy for Young Students?

Table of Contents Zoom In Picture Stories Are your students always taking pictures? Engage their curiosity with the images you can find on Learn360.

Challenge them to guess what the image is. As students guess, ask your students to share descriptive words connected with the image. Write down all the descriptive words and task students to write a poem, haiku, or story about what the image is. Once all students have submitted their writing, reveal the image. Don’t forget to print out the blurry image and the clear image, and turn your students’ writing into your next bulletin […]Read More
Technology is everywhere. Embrace your creativity with these innovative strategies and make the most of your Learn360 subscription. Table of Contents 1. Classroom Timeline What did you learn today? Any parent or teacher can tell you that this question is often met with a sigh, and then silence. We often remember the first day of school and the last, and in between is a blur of projects, field trips, and spirit days. This year, help your students (and yourself) keep track of all your amazing classroom learning by adding a class timeline to your classroom decor. Start with some masking tape and create a long base for your timeline. I recommend displaying your timeline at your student’s eye level so that they can help maintain and add to the classroom timeline. During the first week of school, I always discuss with my students what they are looking forward to in the coming school year. Make sure to add students’ birthdays, holidays, and field trips to the class timeline to get it going. Then, at the end of each month, review all of the videos that were viewed and ask all the students to write down the most memorable Learn360 video […]Read More
