In order to help my students understand how the stocks were used back during Colonial American time (and to review key facts about each group-New England, Middle, and Southern Colonies), I created a PowerPoint for students to use. Before we begin, students are given a certain amount of money to use. They are then given a sheet (in the file) to record their daily events on. Each day, I show a slide detailing one thing that happened to them. They have to figure out how much money they gained or lost and how much money they have then based on that information. They really have a lot of fun doing this, and it reviews key concepts they need to remember along the way! I hope your class loves these as much as mine does!
