The Berenstain Bears' Trouble with Money

The Berenstain Bears' Trouble with Money

In this lesson, students hear a story about two little bears whose parents use several figures of speech relating to money. Students draw a picture of a bank and write a caption explaining their illustration. Students follow along with the story by listening for additional figures of speech and how they relate to the concepts of banks and interest. The students also construct a story map of an event in the story relating to why people choose to keep their money in banks. (Book written by Stan and Jan Berenstain / ISBN: 0-394-85917-0)
