Throughout April, we will be celebrating Financial Capability Month by featuring a variety of financial education programs and resources that you can put to use in your classroom right away. The first of these programs is Banzai! No, we’re not talking about the tiny trees but rather a great online financial literacy program.
Banzai offers courses at three levels Junior (ages 8-12), Teen (ages 13-18), and Plus (ages 16+). Each is free of charge, and teachers have access to a teacher account in which they can set up classes and view student assessment. Printed activity kits are optional but recommended at the Junior and Teen levels. Banzai offers PDF versions of the kits that teachers can print on their own, or you can request printed copies for your students that are made possible through sponsorships from local financial institutions.
