Investments is offered by DAEG for 4th & 5th graders who are interested in learning how the stock market works. Students will learn the basics of investments and stock research, and continue to grow their investment expertise. They will form teams and invest "money" on an interactive site that provides an on-line simulation of the global capital markets. They will learn how to conduct research using various sites such as cnnmoney.com, Yahoo Finance, Bloomberg and CNBC; compile research using an excel spreadsheet or other tools; buy and sell stocks; plot investments; have a friendly “competition” against other teams around the region, including other classes in Darien; and report results using a Powerpoint presentation. Students will engage in the world of economics, investing, and personal finance! No prior investment experience needed.
