Playing a stock market game is fun. But what if there was a semester long version of a stock market game for your class. In this lesson, students invest in stocks that would hypothetically be available from 1607-1776. If students do the readings in class, pay attention to your notes, then they will know what stocks to invest and get rich!
1. Each day in class is a new year.
2. Stock Market is open: Students buy and sell stocks based on the listed price.
