Growing Money

Some financial goals cannot be met by saving money alone; investing is required to grow our savings over time. This lesson introduces students to the concept of investing and the important role it plays in meeting long-term goals. Students will explore the relationship between saving and investing and learn to identify the key differences.

A savings account is a great place to store your money at first. It’s safe and it pays a little interest. But it won’t make you rich! Growing your money requires that you move some of it into investments with a higher rate of return.
