I created this unit for my 5th graders this year. Unhappy with the economics section in our textbook, I created this (11) week unit.
The students start out my choosing a publicly traded company. Then each week, students answer questions related to their stock and the stock market. Each week offers different and unique challenges for the students to master. Internet usage is needed to answer some questions about specific stock quotes. My 5th graders had a blast following their companies this year. Some even got responses to their letters. You will have to check out week # 4 for that lesson. There are a total of (11) weekly worksheets with an assessment at the end of the unit.
Hope you enjoy it. I know my 5th graders did.
