  7. The Florida Stock Market Challenge is a new investing competition for Florida students. Click on “investing rules” under the general links to get an idea of how the simulation works. Teachers like this simulation since the amount of class time required is strictly in the hands of the teacher. Students may invest in stocks, mutual funds, and bonds. Whether you decide to participate in the challenge or not you can direct your students (or yourself) to the investing information page.
