One Month Stock Market Challenge

This is for a Stock Market Activity posted on my Facebook page to 450 teachers.
Teachers, there are 3 options. Click on the link to sign up for options one or two.  
1. Option one is a week from May 1 - 5 
2. Option two is a one-month activity from May 1 - June 2 for $12.50
3. Option three allows you to try the activity for a week, and continue after. But there's a catch. Click on the option three link for details.
In order to participate in option two, you'll need to purchase the activity on my website or on Teachers Pay Teachers, and send Ryan an email with the receipt to be verified.
By purchasing, you and your students will receive:
  • An individual stock brokerage account for every student in your class with $10 000 to trade with for a month and your students can explore the stock market by buying and selling stocks.
  • They’ll get to compete against and learn with other classes. One of my favourite features is that students can see the portfolio of other students in the activity.  
  • Each class will receive a welcome video about the stock market works and how to buy a stock on the stock trading site.
  • At the beginning of each week, you will receive one video and worksheet to share with your students on a topic pertaining to a new concept in the stock market.
  • Topics include: 
    • Having realistic expectations when trading and focusing on a long-term mindset.
    • Learning when we buy stocks in a company, we become an owner in that company. I have a fun example of Roblox!
    • Understanding what an up and down market (ie. bear and bull markets).
    • The importance of having a balanced portfolio vs meme stock investing.
  • At the end of the week, I will have a weekly portfolio check-in sheet for students allowing them to log their portfolio journey. 
  • I have a collaborative Google Sheet activity you will be able to share with students at the beginning of the activity.
  • At the end of the month, you will receive a 10-question quiz they can share with their students with an answer sheet.
  • There is also a graphing assignment for your students to do at the end of the month to chart their journey.


*** BONUS ***

  • Following the activity, I will be posting a how-to guide for teachers to run their own classroom stock market activity, plus all of the material above. The cost of TpT will be $15.00. By purchasing this resource, I will send you a free copy of that resource so you have the step-by-step guide to do this with your class next year.
  • You will also get access to the teacher video, teacher handout, and student handout of Episode 006 - The Power of Compound Interest, which will compliment our stock market activity.
