Checking Stocks

Normally I’m not a big fan of using cell phones in the classroom, however today we were able to put them to good use. Today I introduced the stock market challenge to my students…in this challenge they are given a fictional amount of money, $1,000, and asked to invest it whatever they deem as worthy. In the picture above you can see one of my students using his stock app checking stocks trying to decide what he will invest in.

This comes after our discussions about the Great Depression and learning how the stock market works. Students will be given 5 days to try and turn a profit on their investments.
