FinCap Friday Kahoots Are Here!
For the EdPuzzle version of this activity, click here.
Just in time for the new school year, NGPF has something to energize your Friday classrooms and engage them through current events. This will replace our Friday Question of the Day and we are calling it FinCap Friday and here's the deets [FinCap being short for building Financial Capability!]:
- We pull a current event and create a five question Kahoot which will build your student's content knowledge on the topic. We look for current events that are not ephemeral but will continue to be pertinent years into the future. This week we chose the news about a pending worldwide bank heist.
- Following the Kahoot, Yanely provides a 60-90 second video with more detail about the current event and why it matters to students.
- Then comes a discussion prompt: an open-ended question to get a great classroom conversation started.
- Finally, a list of engaging NGPF resources and reference materials to extend the learning on this topic.
Drumroll please, welcome to the first edition of FinCap Friday: Hackers Plan Global Bank Heist
These FinCap Fridays will be released on our blog every Thursday afternoon (3pm PT) and and you will be able to access all of them here.
Shout out to NGPF Fellows Amanda Volz, Brian Page, Jill Thompson, Tony Montgomery, Laurie Gardner and Brian Johnson who provided valuable input during our product development process!
