Fifth grade GATES students at Southern Elementary participated in a six week stock market simulation as part of an economics unit during their weekly GATES sessions with Mrs. Lustenberg. Students were introduced to the stock market and the process for trading shares of stock. Each student was given a $50,000 mock bank account to purchase shares of stock and an accounting sheet to keep track of their finances.
