Level C is recommended for either 2nd or 3rd grade classrooms.

Hours of Instruction: 6 (eight 45-minute lessons)

The lessons are fully-scripted so teachers need not create lesson plans. Students love working with the Money Savvy Pig piggy bank and, of course, receiving one of their very own to use in the classroom and ultimately take home. They relate to the hands-on-activities, two per lesson that simulate real life experiences and will enjoy singing along to the catchy "History of Money" song.
