We are currently doing a Stock project, where the students pick a stock they want to follow, such as McDonald's, Toys R Us, Great Adventure, etc. They make a brochure for prospective investors during their computer class time with the computer instructor; they graph the sales f the stock over a 6 week period; figure out the amount of stock they could buy with X amount of money; learn when a stock splits what it means. This incorporates a lot, such as math, reading, newspaper in the classroom, watching the stock reports on TV, comparing and contrasting, etc.
