Financial Literacy Lesson Plans 5.10A, 5.10B, 5.10C, 5.10D, 5.10E, 5.10F




Complete Lesson Plans and All Activities for Financial Literacy

This unit is 5 days and jammed packed with activities to help your students understand complex concepts!

Financial Literacy in 5th Grade is all about:

  • Taxes
  • Gross vs. Net Income
  • The Advantages and Disadvantages of using Credit, Debit, Electronic Payments and Checks
  • Balancing a Budget!

These skills are very much needed!

I have broken down each TEK into Learning Targets to make it easier to track student progress. There are 6 skills in this unit! Each learning target contains intervention and enrichment skills. A student data sheet is included for students to reflect on their own learning for the unit. A teacher tracking sheet is included to make small group instruction easier!
