Product Description
Appeal to visual learners with this hands-on learning tool to teach investing. These cards can be used for two purposes. Start by having students replicate an investment pyramid based on risk and return, then have students play a vocabulary game to test their knowledge of the investment types. This file includes 13 saving/investment types listed on cards to use for the activity. See preview for example.

Print a set of the cards for the class or for each group. Laminate to make the cards last for years to come. My favorite way to use the cards is to give each table (group of 4) a set of cards and have them race to see which group can properly assemble the pyramid the quickest. Included in this file is a key for checking answers.

Students will use the principal of risk vs. return to assemble an investment pyramid. Students should compare and contrast the risk and return for each savings or investment vehicle.

Next, allow students a set time (~1 min/team). Player 1 will show player 2 the cards so that player 1 cannot see the cards they are displaying. Player 1 will try to guess the vocab term as player 2 describes it. Once player 1 guesses the correct term, player 1 will pick up a 2nd card. The goal being for player 1 to guess the most investment types in the time allowed. Have the players switch roles and continue the game.
