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). Theyâ€™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.
