This project is designed to be an at-home project with the first three days to be introduced in class and become familiar with Yahoo Finance and new vocabulary students will encounter.

This product includes:
-A list of topics the students will cover
-Academic standards (may need to be adjusted for specific states)
-Introduction of project, what is the stock market and how it works
-Step by step process in detail
-Day-to-day activities that students should be following at home, including due days (dates to be determined by teacher)
-Rubric to grade the project
-Student Worksheet: stocks the students choose and pricing
-Student Worksheet: What I Learned (if you choose to use a guest speaker)
-Parent acknowledgement form to verify they understand the extent of this at-home project
-Rubric ready to print (two copies on one page)
-List of companies that the students will find interesting in which they may want to research and invest in.
***You may want to allow addition time in class (maybe once a week) so the students who do not have access to the internet can have the same opportunity to be successful.
