This site teaches money management to children from the ground up.  It is divided into four sections: kids, teens, parents, and teachers.  Though it talks about earning, the site focuses on saving money, with easily understood examples and action plans to help kids save for the things they want.  It even includes a calculator for determining how much you would have to save and earn to become a millionaire.  The teacher’s section has several solid economics lesson plans tied to various money matters. 

In a spend-happy society, this is a timely place to send kids for learning basic money management right from the start.
