Activity Description

In this interactive worksheet activity, students will learn to evaluate and compare the potential returns and risks associated with various investment options over a 30-year horizon. Through data recording, analysis, and critical thinking, students will gain invaluable insights into the world of financial decision-making.

The investment schemes covered are:

  1. Savings Account
  2. Certificate of Deposit
  3. Stock Market Investment
  4. Cryptocurrency Investment
  5. Venture Capital Investment

each with its own risk and returns. Students will find out that high-risk schemes can give a very high return over a 30-year period but they have a high chance of losing the entire investment money.

Learning Objective

Develop the ability to assess and understand the relationship between potential returns and the risk of losing invested capital over an extended period (30 years). Students will learn how to make informed decisions regarding investment options based on risk tolerance and financial goals.
