Product Description
This first lesson in a series of four is meant to be done the first day of the stock market unit, and preferably during the first week of the course, as, later in lesson 4 they will be tracking stocks on the stock market each week. The pie game is a fun and interactive assignment where students will learn the vocabulary for the stock market by DOING, not by lecture. Paper pies are created and cut out, and students will buy and sell their pieces to each other as the market randomly goes up and down for 12 "months" or periods. It is accompanied by an interactive PowerPoint that will go over some basic vocabulary and discussion items after the game is completed.

This lesson will teach students the concepts of stocks, shares, shareholders, gains, losses, etc. It also comes with a step by step video for the teacher that explains exactly how the game is to be played. A fun an interactive way to begin teaching the Stock Market! While teaching this lesson to my 9th graders, they kept exclaiming things like, "This game is so fun!" and "This class is awesome!" It was so fun to see them enjoy learning, and to see them pick up concepts on their own like selling high and buying low. A great introduction game!

Student access to Microsoft Excel is required.
