Money Savvy U is the perfect complement to any economics, consumer education, business education or personal finance class. Designed to engage young teens in grades 6-10, the classroom presentation material generates interesting classroom discussions. Each of the eight scripted lessons requires approximately 30 to 60 minutes of classroom time, including discussions. Instructor materials consist of a scripted, animated PowerPoint presentation on a USB Drive, an instructor's script with discussion starters, suggested classroom exercises, budgeting templates and other resources. Students learn to build sound money management habits by practicing with the Cash Cache Personal Finance Organizer. The curriculum also includes the "Do You Think Like A Millionaire Game" designed to teach asset-building skills through a fun and interactive team game format.
