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.
