In this lesson, students will learn about the causes and effects of the Stock Market Crash through an interactive activity where they have the opportunity to experience stock speculation. A banker (one of the students) will give "easy" credit, and the students will experience the thrill of fast earnings before the "crash." Consequently the bank will also fail when the borrower can't repay the loan. This lesson also correlates with the easy credit stock and bank collapse of 2007. This is a 10 minute activity which can be followed up with discussion and notes (notes attached to the lesson plan). Detailed lesson plan with teacher instructions are included.
