Stock Market Game

The Stock Market Game is an engaging educational program used in classrooms nationwide to teach economics, math, social studies, business, language arts and technology while focusing on the importance of developing real world personal finance skills. Teams of students in grades 4-12 use the SMG simulation to learn the basics of investing as they create and manage an online portfolio over 10 weeks. The SMG is more than a game…it is an education for life.
