New Feed the Pig Cirriculum Targets Younger Audience


The AICPA and The Advertising Council have developed Feed the Pig for Tweens, a new financial literacy curriculum for fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders.

The program is an extension of the Feed the Pig campaign, featuring Benjamin Bankes, which was designed to help 25- to 34-year-olds take control of their finances.

Feed the Pig for Tweens was developed by JMH Education, with input from its Teacher Advisory Board in cooperation with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. The curriculum introduces students to responsible financial decision making and reinforces math skills with real-life applications.

Teachers may order printed copies ordownload the curriculum free at http://feedthepig.org/tweens.
