Teaching Kids About Business and Investing
One other thing I have been thinking about is a good way to teach kids company recognition. My kids have their favorite cereals and drinks and other food products from the grocery store. I think it would be neat to show them how to find out who makes those products. Actually, I could expand it to almost everything they like: books, computer games, bicyles, etc.,...
Through this little project my goal would be for them to learn the difference between a private company and a publicily-traded company. I could teach them how to find out how much money the company makes (revenues) and also how to calculate the company's market value.
My goal isn't to make them experts on business. I don't want to overload them and turn them off. I want to simply raise their curiousity and hopefully it will take off from there.
Comments or suggestions?
