Money Sense: Financial Literacy in the Classroom is a new Saskatoon Industry-Education Council (SIEC) program designed to help middle years teachers with their instruction of Saskatchewan’s new financial literacy curriculum. The SIEC thanks the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (cfee.ca) and the Saskatchewan Financial Literacy Network (sfln.ca) for co-funding the creation of this program.

 

  • Teachers who access Money Sense will find lesson plans and resources that are directly connected to the modules that are suggested for middle years Practical and Applied Arts survey courses.
  • Teachers are encouraged to browse through the “Supplementary Resources” files to find other resources that may be relevant for their students.
  • The “Money Fair” tab contains resources designed to support the Talk With Our Kids About Money Money Fair program—an engaging inquiry-based project that allows students to explore financial topics that pique their curiosity.
