Teachers can order printed materials called activity kits to supplement their classroom discussions and continue teaching financial literacy. There is an activity kit for Banzai Junior and another activity kit for Banzai Teen.
The activity kits contain three age-appropriate, bonus activities to wrap up the Banzai program:
Interview a Grown-Up: Students interview an adult about financial literacy with an interview prompt, and write down his or her responses. This activity is a great opportunity to get a financial professional in the classroom, or have students do some off-campus interaction.
Banzai Swap: Students cut out the cards and play a fun, short trading game called Banzai Swap. It is a short game that requires groups of five to seven players and can be played with the entire class for the final round.
Crossword Puzzle: Students play crossword puzzles on essential vocab terms they learned in their Banzai course: Junior terms (i.e., budget, income, deposit, interest) and Teen terms (i.e., insurance, overdraft, balance, debit) are standard and used every day in adult life.
The Teen activity kit also comes with one copy of the Teacher's Guide, which contains additional teaching points. if you want to keep the discussion going in your classroom and tailor lessons to your students' interests even more, you can also teach with the Interactive Library that carries in-depth, interactive articles about many subjects.
