Have you been searching for an easy-to-follow, low prep, highly engaging, research-based project for teaching the stock market? If so, this project is for you! Watching my students research stocks, get a little competitive with their peers, and become really invested in the success of their companies is one of the highlights of my semester. I created this project with the intent that students could use the provided materials to not only gain a baseline understanding of the stock market but comprehend relevant vocabulary and put what they’ve learned into practice as they “purchase” (and later “sell”) their own stocks.
I usually complete this project with my students in 1 block period and 1 50-minute period spaced a month apart (so their stock prices have time to change). I’ve included Teacher Advice for Implementation & Grading as well.
