Reading the Fine Print

Reading the Fine Print

It’s never too early for students to learn about the dangers of fine print. This interactive site helps students understand that a deal may not always be as good as it seems at first glance. Students complete three activities to learn how to spot a deal that sounds too good to be true. Then they look at six different ads using a calculator to determine whether the deal being advertised is a good deal or a bad deal. Finally, students use a calculator to determine the actual cost of the goods being sold in two different ads. With advertisements bombarding us daily, it is important to teach students how to read them and determine whether they are good deals or too good to be true.
