The Stock Market Game (SMG) is an online simulation of the global capital markets that engages students grades 4-12 in the world of economics, investing and personal finance and that has prepared students for financially independent futures. Over a 10 week session, The Stock Market Game teaches students the fundamentals of personal finance and investing, while practicing skills in math, economics, social studies and other subjects. Since the SMG is tied directly to the real markets, it provides an excellent framework for discussing the impact of real world events such as business cycles, trade wars and so forth.
There are three games we offer during the school year; a fall competitive game, spring competitive game and a 7 month competitive game. In addition, during the fall and spring we also offer enrichment games.
