On the internet go to google think of a topic you'd like to learn more about such as currency or stock market type it in the search window you might find more interesting sites if you put "for kids". Pick ones that look interesting. At home ask your parents to help you open a checking or saving account at the bank. The bank will hold your money and send you a monthly statement telling you how much you have and how much you've spent. A checking account lets you take out money any time you would like. A savings account gives you interest on your money so you will actually earn money without doing anything!

Thank you!!!
