Money Lessons Online for Kids, Parents and Teachers

Help your children learn about money at home. Here are links to games, activities and simple lessons to share with them. Since California does not require financial education in our schools, this time at home is a great opportunity to help students learn some key life skills. Whether you’re a parent or a teacher, you can encourage them to be better consumers and citizens by understanding money. For even more information, check out Teaching Resources.
