The Crash!!

September 25, 2017

In American History II we have begun our unit on the 1930s and the Great Depression that took place. To get the students to understand the struggles of the times we have been playing a stock market game. Students have been able to buy and sell stocks at prices that represent the actual stock prices of the times. They have seen days when their stocks have risen but also days when they have fallen. Some students have made a great deal of money only to lose it a few days later when the stock market crashed in the game. Many have enjoyed the game and have found a connection to the people of the times through playing it.
