What Is an Investment?


In this lesson, teachers will introduce students to the concept of investing. Students will rely on personal experience to create a list of potential “investments.” Based on this list, teachers will lead a short discussion on different investment instruments. Both teachers and students will provide personal definitions of investing. Finally, we will compare different types of investments by introducing students to the concept of risk.
