MANY HIGH SCHOOLS HAVE BIOLOGY AND CHEMISTRY LABS.
SO, WHY DON’T THEY HAVE FINANCE LABS?

High School Finance Lab

While some high school students pursue careers in biology or chemistry, EVERY student will someday have a bank account and a credit card. EVERY student will get a job and pay taxes.  EVERY student will buy or lease a car and have to buy auto insurance.  EVERY student will rent an apartment or buy a house. And, hopefully, EVERY student will enjoy a comfortable retirement.   So why don’t schools require EVERY student to take a class in a Finance Lab? Let us show you how your school can teach ALL of your students these real-world, practical life skills.

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING AT ITS BEST!

With our high school FINANCE LAB, you can make sure ALL of your students improve their financial literacy.  Engage your Personal Finance, Economics, Social Studies, Business, and Math students with real-world applications in an exciting Wall Street-style classroom.  Our Finance Lab package is a combination of hardware and a customizable stock market game that integrates over 125 lessons and activities aligned to national standards. When you add a Finance Lab to your school, you will have your students lining up in the hallway to take a class in your Lab.

Magic Money

BUT HERE IS WHERE THE MAGIC (AND LEARNING) OCCURS…

While learning how to save and invest by managing a portfolio of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, your students will be led through the site’s built-in curriculum of articles, activities, videos, and quizzes that ensure mastery of the subject. Your Personal Finance classes will use our 25 embedded lessons and activities that align to the Personal Finance standards; your Economics classes will use our 25 Economics lessons and activities that align to Economics standards; and similarly for your Social Studies, Math and Business classes. All 125+ lessons and activities are aligned to national standards, but all have a personal finance theme.

Finance Lab Assignments

YES! FIVE SUBJECTS IN ONE SITE.

Five different subjects can be taught through the same website (PersonalFinanceLab.com and each class will have access to the articles and activities aligned to the relevant national standards. With this site, most of the articles and activities have a financial literacy theme to help them with their understanding of the markets, savings, and investing.  Along the way, students will also learn how current events, the government, politics, and large businesses can impact the financial markets and their own portfolios.

Self-Grading Pop Quizzes Insure Student Mastery

From the teacher perspective, our site is self-paced so that students can work at their own speed completing the articles and activities. The site is also self-grading, so that teachers will know which students have completed which articles and activities because every task on the site has a pop-quiz at the end.

Students must show mastery of the subject in order to get credit for completing that task!
