Fourth grade students at Macdonough School are participating in the Stock Market Game.
Starting with a virtual cash account of $100,000, students strive to create the best-performing portfolio using a live trading simulation. They invest in companies, track their investments, and compete with other school teams across the state during a ten week session in a race to make the most of their investments.
Macdonough's fourth grade teachers are also in the game, participating in the teacher division (but with a close eye on how they stack up against the student teams)!
Some teams will make money, some teams will lose money, but all teams will learn something in The Stock Market Game.
