Did you know that you can become a part owner of many of your favorite companies?

Show the kids the logos one at a time, and have them guess the company. In order, Pinterest, Uber, Dunkin Donuts, Apple, Tesla, Dominos.


Many companies “go public” when they need money.

Talk about how companies need money to grow, and one way how they can get money is to go public.


They sell “shares” of “stock” in exchange for money, which allows anyone to become an owner!

When Uber went public, they sold stock to investors.


Some companies that recently “went public.”

$1,600,000,000

$8,100,000,000

$240,000,000

$2,340,000,000

Show them the logo first, have them guess the company name, and then show how much money these companies raised in 1 day!


Why do investors buy the stock?

They become entitled to a portion of the company’s profits forever and can make their money grow!


What is profit?

Show them the picture, ask how much they buy it for. Then, ask them how much it costs Dunkin to make it. I know this is WAY over simplified and leaves out a lot of other costs, but the idea is to teach them what “profit” means.
