When choosing a place to put their money, people consider how safe there money will be, how easy it is to access, and whether it will earn more money. Students explore how well different savings places achieve these objectives. Students learn that people who don’t want to carry money with them or keep it at home often choose to put their money in a savings account at a bank or credit union.
