Mrs. Meyer is currently doing a Stock Market Game with her students. They have $100,000 to spend in the stock market. The students are learning about risks and rewards, what it means to save in a savings account compared to investing that money, and which one has further growth. Additionally, they're learning what it means to invest in a mutual fund and what it means to own stock in general. The class is also talking about 401Ks.
Students then take this information and are trying to find the best way to invest after further discussion and research. The team that earns the most amount of money by December 7 earns Extra Credit!
