Stock Market Game

Description: The Mississippi Stock Market Game (SMG) is a simulation of a real market, designed to involve students in the world of finance and investing as a means of helping them learn about how a market economy works. Student teams of 3 to 5 students invest a hypothetical $100,000 in stocks and compete for the best portfolio performance. There are two separate 13-week programs each year; one in the Fall and one in the Spring.

The program is available to all public and private students throughout the state of Mississippi in grades 4 through 12. The program is adaptable for many different classes, including social studies, mathematics, economics, business, technology, gifted, MOD, Special Education, and club activities. Students learn to develop team strategies, make decisions, and become informed about investment and economic terms. They also learn to see the connection between world events and their investments.

In this ONLINE ON-DEMAND teacher training, learn how to implement the SMG in your classroom! (Takes about 5 hours to complete.)

For: 4-12 grade teachers

When: NOW!

Where: ONLINE!

Fee: No registration fee

Requirements: Must have a desktop, laptop or tablet with internet capability.

What’s in it for me?: Free curriculum and 0.5 CEUs (CEU’s will only be awarded for the first completion of the course).
