Stock Market Class Activity


Stock Market Project
We've been studying the 1920s and as we transition into the 1930s, we've stopped in at the Stock Market Crash of 1929. I find the stock market one of the trickiest things to teach - the kiddos can't grasp the concept of banks running out of money. They don't understand that when you deposit money in the bank, it doesn't just sit there in a box. So we read articles, watched videos, and played a classroom interactive stock market simulation called "Buy, Sell, or Trade" 

Here's a sample of what the display and student report could look like:
 Here's a blank template for the students to fill out:

It may seem a little daunting and over-the-heads of many students, but it's worth it for the few students who really grasp it and are challenged by the concept - I have kids BEGGING to do it again for another five days next week!
