  • Students get to practice their inference and connection skills when analyzing how the cartoon portrays the importance of having a high credit score. 
  • This cartoon activity can be useful for educators who teach in other content areas, such as history, ELA, or media literacy, and want to incorporate personal finance into their classes!
