Teaching Resource: Try Your Hand at Shares

In this activity students imagine that they have been given 20,000 to use to buy shares and then sell at a later date.

The aim is to make as much profit as they can over the days or weeks that the project runs.

They may only buy shares from the FTSE top 100 index.
