Exploring the Stock Market - Investing for Fifth Graders
Just how much CAN a 10 year old gain playing the stock market? (And it's not all about the money!)
Core Understandings
Using technology to research, track, and graph stock market data helps students understand essential concepts and skills pertinent to their academic, employment and financial futures.

Developing skills for researching the Internet,  setting-up spreadsheets and graphs, and analizing collected data expands student opportunities for academic and employment success.

Strengthening the ability for reasoning, graphing, rounding, number sense, and the interpretation of fractions and decimals not only aligns with California Math Content Standards for fifth grade, but are also useful skills for everyday life in and out of school.
