Stock Market Game

We have been participating in the Stock Market Game. The Stock Market Game allows students from different schools to perform trades in the stock market. Each school competes against both students of their age, and students who are younger and older than they are. This game is great for schools because it helps students learn the value of money and how to make smart trades in the stock market. The game gives each team $100,000 in imaginary money to start, and when the competition is over, the top five teams with the most money get to go to Washington DC. We had a financial advisor come into our class to teach us about the stock market so that we knew the different kinds of shares you can buy such as a mutual fund or a stock. He also taught us what was a safe buy and what was a risky buy. In all, this game is a great way for us to learn about the stock market.
