Understanding the Financial Crisis – Say It Visually

Last Thursday I wrote a blog post titled Simple Lessons in Saving and Borrowing Money. In that blog post I shared some resources for conducting lessons about personal finance. That blog post has resources suitable for elementary school students as well as middle school and high school students. This morning I found a good video, produced by Say It Visually that explains the 2008 US financial crisis. Say It Visually produces videos in a simple and clear, animated style similar to Common Craft. What I like about this video is that it explains the role of individuals in the financial crisis.

Applications for Education
This video makes a nice complement to lesson plans about personal finance and economics in general.
Here are some ideas and resources for teaching economics:
Saving Money in Plain English and Other Economics Lessons
The History of Credit Cards in the United States
Economics for Elementary School through High School
