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!)
Extension Activity Ideas
Stock Market "Extension" Learning Ideas:

  • Students create a Power Point poster (Advertisement) recommending one of their company / stocks (poster should include Excel line graph of the stock's recent performance).  The poster should "sell" the stock to others as a good one in which to invest.
  • Students use Comic Life software to create a fun but educational poster on the basics of investing in a stock.
  • Students make a 30 - 60 second enhanced podcast that chronicals their three week investment experience.  Images could include the company / stock logo, screen shots of their Excel Combo tracking page, and their final Excel line graph.
