Invest some time in learning about the stock market. Your time could really pay off!
What is the stock market? As a class, brainstorm a list of things known about stocks and financial markets from books, media sources or family and friends. Make a list of student contributions on a classroom white board using Crayola Dry Erase Markers.
The stock market is an organized marketplace where stocks, or shares of a company, are bought and sold. Companies sell stock in their business in order to raise money to start or expand their operations. Organize students into collaborative groups and challenge them to look up stock prices for companies that produce some of their favorite items. How much would you pay for one share?
The stock market fluctuates, or goes up and down, based on the global economy. Research the difference between a "bear" and a "bull" market. What type of market are we experiencing now?
In order to understand how the market changes daily, invite each group to select five stocks to follow. Create a chart on construction paper with Crayola Metallic FX Crayons and Metallic Colored Pencils. Each day over the course of four weeks, record your daily stock price.
How do stock prices changes over the month? Was there any news that impacted your stock prices? If the stock paid dividends, how much money would you have made? Use data to support responses.
Each student group organizes their data integrating it into a brief presentation for classmates. During the presentation, members of the group share the stocks selected, reasoning why these stocks were chosen, and how the stocks fared during the period of observation. Share, as well, steps the team would repeat and others they would do differently if this process was repeated.
