BPY MS Invests in the Stock Market

BPY middle school has joined schools around the country in the Stock Market Game. This Spring, students will have the opportunity to “invest” $100,000 in the stock market. Through this game, the students will learn about teamwork, collaboration, decision making, the stock market and gain an understanding of how to make financial decisions. The first step was to break into groups and then for each group to choose a name. There was a very specific process to ensure that each student has input. This same process will be used throughout the game. Once they were in groups, they worked on an activity to understand the value of $100,000. Students had an opportunity to “spend” the money on items that they enjoy buying. They were surprised how hard it was to spend $100,000. They are now learning about private and public companies as well as the symbols used to represent the companies.
