Updated: More teacher instructions added, easier format for producing student stocks etc.

This game has served as an excellent introduction into the stock market of the 1920s. In addition, it transitions well in the Great Depression. Each class I have done this with has really enjoyed it.

The way the game works:

- Students will be given shares from different companies with differing values. Each new slide is a new year with different share values. Student then tabulate their total worth and trade with other students. A new slide is revealed and the process is repeated. The game culminates with the stock market crash of 1929.
