Reviewers Comments: Pretend EBT cards are specific to Wisconsin. Highly interactive. Lesson provides objectives, teaching materials, background information, activity steps, discussion questions, concluding lesson questions and place for educators to record how well the lesson went. Directions for the activity are clear and easy to follow. This lesson designed for use with groups but could be adapted for individual instruction.
