What educators are saying

This activity was amazing to give my students a glimpse at the excitement that people were feeling during the Roaring 20s and the devastation after the Stock Market crashed in 1929.
This was a great game to review key concepts about the stock market. Thank you so much! The students loved it!

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.
