Just One Resource  



In this weekly blog post, the Curriculum team will highlight Just One Resource from our NGPF collection that maybe doesn't get the attention it deserves. Use it this week or bookmark it for later. 

[The Resource] INTERACTIVE: Online Bank Simulator

The Gist: Students get the chance to explore different features online banking has to offer by going through an online bank simulation! 

The Best Parts:

  • Students review their bank account statements to make sure their transactions are correct
  • Toggling between checking and saving accounts allows students to see how they can manage their account online, transfer money between the two, and more! 
  • Students experience what it's like to set up Bill Pay for any bills they owe

⟶ We have a trio of complementary resources that work well with this interactive: MOVE: To Understand Overdraft Fees, COMPARE: Overdraft Fees, and CALCULATE: Reconcile Your Checkbook.

Overall, this simulation is a great way for students to experience the benefits of online banking and explore the different features it offers before they even have their own bank account!
