Stock Market Project Launches Today

Yet another Gateway Exhibition project started today, The Stock Market Project!

Students learned the basics about the stock market today. For the next few weeks we'll be using stocks as a way of teaching percents, decimals, fractions, money story problems, and more. Kids will be paired and each pair will receive 10,000 "dollars" to invest. We'll track the stocks over time to see who makes the most money!

It should be fun and quite educational.
