Knowledge Week 4


Week 4

”An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.”

Benjamin Franklin, an American Founding Father


Translation for Adults

Spend your time  wisely.  Just  as  you  invest  in  your bank account, you must also invest in your “mind” account. You earn very little interest when you  only invest pennies  in  your  bank  account.  The  interest grows exponentially, however, when you invest larger amounts. Make larger investments in your mind. Read as much as you can, learn as much as you can and just

like your bank account, your “mind” account will grow exponentially.


Translation for Kids

The word “contribute” means to put in or invest. Contribute in class, and you’ll help your classmates and yourself to learn more and become better citizens. Contribute to your family by doing chores at home.

You’ll help to make your family happier and your home a better place to live. Reading books and making your best effort in school is your contribution to learning and your mind. Everyday, you must decide which investments are most important for you. Which  decision do you think is a better investment: Playing video games and watching MTV or studying for a big test?


Class Discussion for Children

  1. How much time are you willing to invest in learning, and grow as a person?
