1 unit, 8 lesson plans
Primary (classroom economy)
Primary lesson plans are designed for grades K–8+. These lessons focus on using Stash101 as an online classroom economy and classroom management system that features hands-on money management and rewards for positive behaviors. The lessons are fairly short and gradually roll out the economy for both educators and students. Lessons align to Jump$tart personal finance standards and integrate CASEL competencies. *Note—while K–8 is suggested, teachers of other grades may find these lessons appropriate. We encourage you to pick and choose the lessons that work best for you.
3 units, 30+ lesson plans
Secondary (Stash101 roll out, all about banking, intro to crypto)
Secondary lesson plans are designed for grades 8+ to explicitly teach personal finance skills. Key concepts build on each other in every unit and from unit to unit. Each lesson connects to a Stash101 feature, so students learn skills through an activity, apply the skills to their simulated banking lives, and then revisit those skills throughout the course. Lessons align to Jump$tart personal finance standards and integrate CASEL competencies. While grades 8+ are suggested, teachers of other grades may find these lessons appropriate. We encourage you to pick and choose the lessons that work best for you.
