  • Discuss and evaluate the types of financial transactions described in the story and the reasons people use them.
  • Complete their own brochure showing their understanding of how types of financial transactions differ and why people use them in different situations.
  • Explain why it’s important that consumers know and understand how different types of financial transactions work and any risks, benefits or warnings that are associated with them.

And to make life easier for you we’ve included:

  • A detailed lesson plan.
