Twenty-seven middle school students received the opportunity for leadership; and to teach younger children principles of literacy, income, and saving to achieve a goal while learning the content themselves. Second graders benefited with literacy activities that pertained to the text, "A Chair for My Mother," such as vocabulary, comprehension and writing opportunities followed by an extension activity, where students learned through engaging in play of Money Bags, a Learning Resources coin value game.
