#teamUnited had a great time giving The Stanley Clark School's 3rd grade class a behind-the-scenes tour at one of our branch locations this week!

We played 'Banker for a Day' where they helped Banker Jen make important loan decisions using their math & problem solving skills.

How do you like to teach your kids about money? 🏛💰

The six-week banking unit is in full swing in 3rd grade! Students are learning the fundamentals of saving, earning interest, and spending, while also practicing math skills. Each week students earn play money that can be used to purchase real items from the class store. Yesterday, 3rd graders visited United Federal Credit Union for a behind-the-scenes look at a bank. Later, SCS parent Joe Noffsinger from 1st Source Bank visited to provide a spending and saving lesson for students.

This #ThrowbackThursday goes to the wonderful time #teamUnited had at the Brian Kelly Radio Show with the Kelly Cares Foundation last week!
