Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Investing

Description: 

This is a unit I planned for the Investing section in my Personal Finance class.  It covers different forms of investing and the advantages and disadvantages associated with it.  The lesson exposes students to what stocks are and allows them to participate in a simulation to see how stocks can be used as an investment tool.  Students also see how compounding interest can work for them to help their money grow over time.  

Learning Targets: 
Identify why it important to invest early
Identify different forms of investments
Explain how compound interest affects investments
