About Financial Foundations for Kids (FF4Kids)

Created by Kansans for Kansas youth in 2005, the FF4Kids courseware contains a total of 28 hours of interactive learning for students in grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. Each of the 75 lessons provides approximately 20 – 50 minutes of instruction delivered by engaging age-appropriate characters, and over 350 interactive activities including 157 math exercises. FF4Kids is a comprehensive standards-based curriculum that helps integrate personal financial literacy and its underlying economic principles into existing language arts and math curriculums.

All Kansas schools can use FF4Kids at no cost.  See links at the bottom of this page to access FF4K online. Schools may request a CD for your school that is able to be loaded on your school server for all to access.  Teachers may also request to receive an access ID to use FF4Kids directly through the Internet. If your school has a membership to Kan-Ed Empowered Desktop then you should have access to the resource through that portal. Look for the little pink pig. QUESTIONS?
