Our first online learning class was a huge success, and kids were so eager to learn more about the stock market. They were so excited to share what they had observed about their favorite companies even if the trends were going down.
The next activity we did was learning about the different words related to the stock market. Using this list, kids randomly chose one word and had to create their definitions so that they could explain it to their peers. Additionally, they came up with their analogies for their chosen term.
It amazed me to see kids only in 4th, being able to teach older kids about different stock market terms. The analogies they invented were so creative; it gave me insight into how kids at such young ages think. Their imaginations are wild.
By listening to the kid’s descriptions about the stock market, I gained a more in-depth knowledge of it myself.
