Financial Institution Comparison Activity
I like to do the Financial Institution Comparison Activity in groups but it’s a personal preference. I then assign each group either Bank, Credit Union, or Online Bank (I only have two groups do the online bank because there aren’t many out there to choose from.) They then have 15 min. to fill out the form. Then, one group at a time, I type the info into the Slide and compare the rates and fees across the board. Inevitably, the online bank wins the rate and fee contest, but then we complicate the discussion with how do you pay rent and bills without a checking account?
