A Prezi game to play with your students. Teaches history of Jamestown as well as how joint-stock companies work.
Concept: You (the teacher) are part of the London Company looking for people to invest in a new colony. You promise them riches for a small $5 investment. As you work through the Prezi, the students will learn about the Jamestown settlement. At certain times, the Prezi will announce that the stock has risen in value or depreciated in value. During those times, you give the students the chance to buy out at the new value or increase the amount of their initial investment. The goal is to have the most money at the end of the game.
I have included in this folder: the link to the Prezi I made, as well as fake printable money and printable stock certificates.
