State Farm unveiled a new financial education Web site that provides fun ways for K-12 students to learn basic principles of financial responsibility and money management. With only a handful of states requiring students to complete a personal finance course before graduating high school, the State Farm "Common Cents" online program can help parents and educators give children the real-life skills they need to become smart consumers, sensible savers and responsible investors, according to the Bloomington, Ill.-based insurance company.

Located in the "Kid Stuff" section of State Farm's Web site at www.statefarm.com, the "Common Cents" program provides lessons and educational games for students in grades K-12. The site includes parent and teacher guides and age-appropriate lessons focusing on six key principles of financial literacy: saving, earning, investing, risk management, decision-making, and money management.
