  • Playing the Stock Market
    Students have spent time exploring the stock market through the Internet and have completed a packet working through exercises to show them how a company sells stocks to provide funds to get started with to how a company tracks it's stocks to show a profit or loss. Students are usually eager at this point to form their own company but they are still uncertain how a stock actually works day to day and how the market affects the success of their business. Giving students a chance to have hands-on experience with the stock market better prepares them to see how business operates around them and gives them more incentive to make the company they will form a success.
