 Suggested Money Lesson Plan for this Worksheet   Give an introductory lesson about stocks to your students. Explain that one way that they can save their money is to invest, and one way that people invest is to buy stocks.   A stock represents ownership in a company.  For example if you own 1 share of McDonalds stock, then you are an owner of McDonalds (though a small one!) Let's now practice buying stock with this worksheet.

 WORKSHEET Instructions This is a simple worksheet to teach students that the maximum number of shares you may purchase is the money you have to spend divided by the stock price per share.   For each stock, have the student calculate how many shares they can buy for the money they have (max shares).   Optional -- have the students also write how much money they have left after purchasing the shares.   This worksheet uses REAL recent stock data for stock prices.
