Stock Market Game @ Home

The Stock Market Game at Home is a course designed by the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) Foundation for Investment Education. The new homeschool version of the successful stock market game allows students to gain experience in the financial markets while learning the importance of saving and investing for the long term. Students manage a virtual $100,000 portfolio, and the course comes complete with teacher’s guide, workbook and answer key, and webinars that give parents training to get started. The curriculum would be a wonderful basis for an Economics/Finance/Investment course.
