Where other initiatives are focused on high school and university students, we reach students in grades five and six, who are already barraged with advertising and incredible pressures to spend.
Swamp Secrets Revealed teaches kids how money works AND how to be a savvy consumer. That's a powerfully distinct combination. It's one thing to learn about money. It's another thing to recognize the lures and traps lurking in the swamp.
It's fun. It's engaging. It's easy for teachers to deliver.
Six, one-hour modules covering topics ranging from the price of money, to scams and to banking, helps young students manoeuvre through the financial swamp in life. Interactive activities like Budgeting with Bugs and Don't Get Slimed teach kids the factors that influence their spending and how to see the hidden cash beyond the computer chip.
