In this lesson plan on using credit responsibly, which is adaptable for grades 6-12, students use BrainPOP resources to identify the basic parts of a credit card and how personal information is encoded. Students will explain how credit systems work and the hidden costs of credit (including late fees and annual percentage rates). They’ll also evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of using credit cards, propose strategies for using credit cards wisely, and formulate a personal philosophy toward buying things on credit.
