You can downloaded the entire unit, along with the BLMs and sample answers. There are also professional learning materials explaining the use of the 3-part lesson, Assessment and Evaluation links, Differentiated Instruction throughout the unit etc.


The Ministry of Education published a report in 2010 explaining the purpose of financial literacy, its goal in classrooms, and key concepts that should be taught explicitly.
