Product Description
Stock Market: Student Project

I use this simple project with my fifth graders as I teach them about the stock market crash of 1929 and the eventual demise of the United States economy during the Great Depression.

This project gives students the opportunity to study a stock of their choice for five days and record the fluctuations that happen in prices. At the end of the five days, they graph their results and answer a few questions (in paragraphs) detailing their results. Students have the opportunity to decide whether or not they would invest their own money in the stock market and then explain how the stock market crash led to the Great Depression.

Students like this project and gain a deeper understanding of this complex topic.

Project includes:

1. Student handout
2. Table and Graph sheet for recording answers
3. Teacher rubric

This project is INCLUDED in my: The Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression Unit
