Additional Stock Market Game Resources (Teacher Pilot Project)

Logo depicting and apple for a teacher     The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has created a new instructional resource to be used by classroom teachers who are willing to then provide feedback to the FDIC as they prepare next version of curriculum. The FDIC may also be able to provide workshops for teachers on how to use these materials. See FDIC’s announcement and additional information below and the attachments: 

A new Money Smart curriculum series for young people is now available from the FDIC. Four grade-specific, instructor-led products were launched in April 2015 for Grades Pre-K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12. Each curriculum includes an educator guide, teacher presentation slides, a student guide (for Grades 3-12), and a parent/caregiver guide. These standards-aligned curriculums can easily be incorporated into subjects such as mathematics and social studies.

They can be downloaded free of charge from, part of a Web site that the FDIC and CFPB developed to support classroom instruction about money. Also available on the site are three new videos that illustrate practical ways teachers can integrate core financial education lessons into the classroom. The FDIC is eager for educators to share thoughts on how teachers can be prepared to use the curricula with confidence.  Contact the FDIC at
