Risk Life doesn’t always go the way we plan. That’s why it’s a good idea to have backup plans, like savings for emergencies and insurance policies. This section introduces students to the basics of insurance and the concept of risk.
To launch the unit, print and distribute the unit quiz to assess students’ prior knowledge on risk. Students can also go to www.scholastic.com/nextgeneration/students to take the interactive version of the quiz and print their responses so that you can review the answers in class.
Introduce students to the concepts of risk and insurance and have them engage in their own probability experiment.
