Stop at the following times in the movie and ask questions or prompt a discussion to keep students focused and to assess their understanding before moving on:


Timecode 2:29: How does income relate to a budget?

Timecode 3:09: What are the two types of expenses? Give examples.

After the Movie


Why is it hard not to buy something immediately and instead save to buy something better in the future? 


Look at the four related movies at the bottom of the page. Explain how each is connected to Budgets. 


BrainPOP recommends reading the movie description that appears on the Budgets Topic Page to your class. Then show the movie once through without pausing.  Watch it again, this time using the discussion prompts.
