e2 – AWOL on Financial Literacy

With November being Financial Literacy Month, our AWOL group has been focusing on learning more about the economy and finance. e2 students have worked together to develop inquiry questions that they were curious about, including “why does Canada need a central bank?” and “what causes inflation?”. Then, we visited the Bank of Canada Museum to find answers. Students examined some past examples of “currency,” such as a tea brick and a beaver pelt, and explored the museum’s many interactive exhibits. Coming up, a financial advisor from a local bank will be visiting the school to speak to the students!
