This British site offers a very complete resource, and its foreign origin may offer a slightly different spin from that encountered on American sites. Teachers and parents alike should find the content useful, and there is a deep well of content submitted by students. American users should note that both the legal situation and the school rules in Britain can differ from that in the US in some significant respects.

Here's a slightly hip introduction to money management and personal finance for young people. There are separate sections for elementary, middle, and high school students, and each section introduces a new set of concepts. The site is a collection of large Flash files, so it will work best with a high-speed or cable modem connection. There's a lot of content in this one.

This is a detailed introduction to checking accounts that would be suitable for high school students who are willing to read the detailed content. The site offers information on different types of accounts, an explanation of how checking accounts work, and information on typical account fees and types of banks. If you're working with a motivated student, turn him or her loose on this one. Be sure to try the Checkbook Basics interactive section with your high school students learning basic consumer skills. Any high school teacher with a course on "living in the real world" will appreciate this site.
