About the Stock Market Game:
Students who participate in the Stock Market Game™ (SMG) have higher scores in math and personal finance exams than those who do not participate. The SMG works well for all learning styles and teachers and students both learn more about saving and investing. Full lesson plans for grades 4-12 are provided so teachers do not need a background in investing nor spend time preparing lessons. Lessons help meet Common Core Standards and are also great for 21st century readiness. Try the SMG in your classroom this semester!
Kansas 4th-12th grade classrooms are invited to participate in The Stock Market Game™ Program at no cost as long as teams have at least 2-3 students per team. No individual teams will be allowed at no cost.
During the 14-weeks sessions we will also have a friendly teacher competition for those teachers with registered classes. You will be asked to participate when you register. There will be random prize drawings, prizes for top portfolios, award dinner invitation, etc.
