Product Description
This lesson begins with a basic overview of the stock market and a quick introduction to stock market vocabulary. Using the reading, students are asked to determine and infer both risks and rewards of investing in the stock market.

Then students are taught to read online stock quotes (from Google Finance) and "invest" money in various stock options. All directions as well as an example are modeled in the PowerPoint!

Finally, a scavenger hunt is included for students who finish early! (I use this as extra credit, but it could also be used as an extension activity or homework.)

Please note that this activity will require computers!
