    My students really enjoy this activity! In my course we focus mostly on investing for retirement, but I wanted to give them a small taste of what it feels like to ride the ups and downs of the stock market and this activity is a way to get that accomplished quickly, and just one class. The slides have a lot of variety, and it really shows students how company news can affect stock value.

    This activity offers a 10 round investing activity which follows a fictional company called Ravioli Den. Students will try to predict what the market will do in relation to the share price of Ravioli Den. Students have the option to buy, sell or hold their shares. This is a great hands-on activity. Best suitable for high school ages.
