Get your students moving with an interactive way to have a discussion about investing! If you're not familiar with the idea, a gallery walk is essentially where students move around the room to complete a task. This product contains 10 discussion questions on investing for a high school course. For a long-lasting product, print these questions on colored paper and laminate. Cut and tape the questions around the room and have students work with a small group or partner to walk around the room and write answers to discussion questions with a dry erase marker (if placed on dry erase board) or have students use post-its to record answers if you're short on board space. At the conclusion of the activity, the teacher should hold a discussion on student responses to discussion questions. I like to do this by having a group stand at each question, pick out 2 or 3 good responses to share, and presenting them to the class. A teacher discussion guide is provided.
