The Stock Market Project

Palolo Stock Market

  • Palolo 4th- and 5th-graders participate in the Stock Market Game, because they will be studying math at an applicable level. CUH students serve as mentors for the kids, getting to know them and encouraging them to set constructive goals. The Game is a means of facilitating this relationship-building and teaching academic concepts in a fun setting
  • For CUH students, please reflect: Through teaching kids about the stock market, what kinds of transferable skills are you building (in them, and in yourself)?
  • For CUH students, please reflect: From an accounting or a corporate law perspective, what’s the rationale for teaching kids to do this?
  • For CUH students, please reflect: How can you apply math concepts to the analysis of stocks and decision making?
