FUNDamentals Financial Literacy Program

America First believes that teaching the rising generation about money matters can put them on the path to financial success. For this reason, we have created a financial literacy program for young students called FUNDamentals.

This program provides a variety of resources for teachers. It’s designed to make financial education fun. Students will learn important monetary concepts through entertaining videos, cleverly designed handouts, engaging presentations, and easy-to-read articles.

It includes:

  • Two full junior lesson plans for grades K-5
  • Eight full lesson plans for grades 6-12
  • 48 additional content packs

We have developed the FUNDamentals program to meet the needs of educators and students within our communities. Our goal is to make financial literacy easily accessible to everyone who wants to learn. Each lesson is aligned with the requirements for Utah State Financial Literacy, Common Core Math, and Common Core English Language Arts.
