Activity Description

In this simulation, each student will be provided with an initial sum of $10,000 to invest in shares from three companies: Moon Pharma, SoftwareCon, and Concrete Constructions. These companies come with varying levels of risk (Low, Medium, and High) and offer different average returns.

Students will evaluate the risk profiles and historical performance of the companies, and strategically allocate their funds across the shares. Their ultimate goal is to achieve a minimum profit of $20,000 by carefully distributing their initial capital.


Through this hands-on exercise, students will not only enhance their financial literacy but also gain valuable skills in investment management, risk assessment, and long-term financial planning.


This worksheet is a classroom-ready interactive and dynamic worksheet that just needs a few clicks to assign to your classroom. The worksheet is auto-scored, teachers just need to open the real-time console and monitor the student progress.

Learning Objective

The primary objectives are to teach students how to make informed investment decisions, assess risk factors associated with different investment options, diversify their portfolios, and develop a long-term investment strategy.
