Money Memes That Make You Smile
We all love to smile, teachers and students alike, and sometimes it’s just a simple meme or pun that can do the trick. A couple of months ago there were a few teachers sharing memes and puns that do just that in the FinLit Fanatics FaceBook community where over 6,000 teachers exchange ideas to teach personal finance: https://www.facebook.com/groups/FinLitFanatics
Thanks to Mary Barber and Mary Anne Bugbee for sending us a few fun memes. They inspired us to pull together 11 fun memes you can use with your students as a classroom hook or if you just need a chuckle. Click here to access the folder and download them for yourself.

At this session, teachers collaborate with one another to construct their own fun memes. Teachers will also have access to the template they can use to assign a similar activity for their own students. Below is a screenshot from the session of the template, group board, and attendee constructed examples:
