Main Curriculum Tie:
Background For Teachers:
Students have had the workings of the stock market explained to them and have worked on a series of six handouts dealing with the basics of stocks. They understand the concept of stocks but really have no concept of how all this information affects them or the buying decisions they make. Using a simulation gives them the chance to actually invest in the stock market and then to see how different things affect their stock and what the end result will be. They will be more prepared to make the decisions necessary in forming their own company and in running it wisely in order to make a profit.
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Closure: At the end of this activity students will be ready to form their own company. They will interview for positions in the company. As executives hire workers and begin production they will see how the company's activities and productivity affect stocks day by day and what the end result will be.
(2) Students may participate in The Stock Market Game sponsored each year by the Deseret News.
(3) Students may invest in the stock market with their own funds
(contingent upon parental permission) and follow their stock for a period
of six weeks, tracking and adjusting as they see fit.
