LifeSmarts in a Box: Teaching Toolkit

A teaching toolkit for educators, LifeSmarts in a Box will jump-start your LifeSmarts experience by providing activities to complement curriculum and enhance classroom instruction. LifeSmarts provides teens with the skills and knowledge they need to evaluate risks and opportunities and make informed decisions in the marketplace. LifeSmarts in a Box complements this by providing tools educators can use to implement LifeSmarts more fully with their teams and classrooms.

LifeSmarts in a Box provides educators with a working set of consumer concepts, keywords, and content vocabulary activities to enliven instruction within the classroom (and in settings beyond the traditional classroom). Aligned with Common Core, the toolkit also includes critical thinking questions, LifeSmarts competition questions, and additional resources.
