A Wisconsin elementary school used a stock-market simulation game to help teach students about financial literacy. The game -- Stock Market Simulation, sponsored by Economics Wisconsin -- is open to students in third through 12th grades. The students were given $100,000 in hypothetical money to invest over 10 weeks. A group of fourth-graders put together the best portfolio among 1,200 teams competing this year, with a 52% return on their investments.
