Welcome Teachers!
These lessons are designed to accompany a version of the series specially edited for classroom use. The classroom video version of ELECTRIC MONEY has short segments of video tied to activities within each lesson. Although it is more convenient to use the classroom video version as a companion to the teacher's guides, under PBS's liberal off-air taping privileges you can use a VHS copy of the program in your classroom that is taped from the broadcast. To order a copy of the classroom video version of ELECTRIC MONEY, e-mail trs@opb.org.
Included here are five interdisciplinary teaching units with lesson plans correlated to the national standards, along with a variety of discussion questions and interactive activities designed to get your students thinking about the impact of all sorts of financial transactions.
Each of the following units is available in Adobe Acrobat format.
