Engage your students in this quick NETFLIX episode (about 20 minutes) on the stock market! Often times, the stock market is something that is regarded as too complex to understand, or too risky to get involved with. However, this episode is extremely informative, comparing the stock market to a simple lemonade stand. It teaches students, and adults alike, a very simplistic way of understanding how it all works. The episode discusses the S&P 500, DOW, NASDAQ, the history of the stock market, and provides tips from Warren Buffet. This is great for any social studies, economics, or government class!
The worksheet is 16 questions. You may need to pause the episode to ensure students don't miss anything. Or, you could use this as substitute work. A key is provided!
