Product Description
This PowerPoint is meant to be used as an introduction to a simulation role-play that asks students to invest in a Joint-Stock company bound for Virginia. Students form investor groups and decide how much money to invest. The number of rounds is up to the teacher. The simulation works best if money invested is initially reduced or lost, but then in the end (due to tobacco) doubled or tripled. The role play allows teachers to introduce the concept of Joint-Stock companies and their use in establishing English colonies in North America. The more general concept of buying stocks and shares is also learned, or may need to be explained. Should be used in conjunction with the fake company certificates and the fake US $10 bills, also available here on TpT.
