Finance Terms

This task was created at the request of my Yr13 sixthformers, “we don’t know any of this stuff, we don’t know how to adult!”

So, this activity consists of four pages with lots of finance words and terms together with information and definitions of what these are. The task is to match up the terms with their definitions. Words are grouped into four pages by:

  • The Basics
  • Using Money
  • Saving Money
  • Borrowing Money
    We have deliberately included some simple and straightforward information as well as some of the more complicated technicalities. The task of matching up is designed to be fairly easy but the real goal here is to easily learn lots about these financial words, products, services etc.

Answers are included, just scroll down (or turn the page) to find them. The matching patterns have been designed to be easy to check pupils work but it’ll probably be easier still to print these off beforehand so that you can refer to them if necessary during the lesson. As mentioned above, we’ve included simple information as well as more complicated but you’re not expected to know all of this yourself. You may even take something from this activity too!

This download includes a pdf file as well as the original powerpoint file for easy editing.
