Services for schools
Behavioural patterns already develop in early childhood. Therefore, it is never too early to talk about money. Three Coins has developed specific formats for both primary school students and youth to take the first steps towards a sustainable money attitude.
Reading “Geld zu verkaufen” (Money for Sale)
One-hour readings for children from 6 to 10 years.
Already at primary school age one can discuss topics related to money with children – after all, everybody has desires, fears and dreams. During our reading, we address these issues and discuss different aspects of money in an open atmosphere.
Digital lesson on money for primary schools
The Money Class is a ready-to-use lesson that helps teachers to teach financial education competently, effectively and yet with little effort. The Money Class materials include a video that accompanies the entire lesson, a detailed lesson plan and ready-made working materials. In this way, we make it possible for students from the lower school to have a successful introduction to the topic of “dealing with money”.
The video can be found here, the additional documents are available for download here.
Financial Competency Workshops
2.5-hour workshops for teens from 13 to 17 years.
During these workshops, we put an emphasis on self-reflexion regarding one’s own consumer and spending behaviour. In addition, we convey basic skills for a sustainable money management in a playful way and with examples close to real life. Topics that we discuss and work on with the students are budgeting, consumerism, indebtedness and the digital world.
