JA More than Money introduces third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade students to financial literacy and entrepreneurship, and to social studies learning objectives that include money-management skills, goods and services, and global markets.

  • Think like entrepreneurs and identify a small business they can start.
  • Learn the basic steps of starting a business.
  • Consider the advantages and disadvantages of borrowing money.
