Class Visits

What is included in the Dollars and $ense: Let's Learn About Money class visit?

Students in grade 3, 4 and 5 will visit the Dollars and $ense: Let's Learn About Money exhibit where they will embark on an exciting hands-on tour through the history of money, how money is made and valued, and how it is used. A replica of a banking institution, a "general store" where goods and money are exchanged, a computer area with online activities related to finance and money and a display of international currencies are just some of the exciting elements your students will experience as they explore the fascinating subjects of money and personal finance. After a brief introduction to the exhibit the children will spend 45 minutes exploring the exhibit including a stop at the computers where they visit the Dollars and $ense: Let's Learn About Money website. Another 45 minutes will be spent in our program room in where your students will participate in an interactive lesson on money management. Funding for the project was provided by the American Library Association (ALA) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Investor Education Foundation.
