MEETS KEY EDUCATIONAL STANDARDS
The course consists of five modules, each comprising several units or lessons.
Each lesson can be used as a freestanding resource. However, the best effect is obtained when teachers start with the two introductory lessons, getting students interested and excited about the subject; then, cover the core modules on economics, investing, and careers; and finally, conduct the comprehensive test which reviews lessons learned and may be used to assign scores to participants.

Bulls & Bears is a perfect addition to any finance or economics class. This board game provides students with a fun and challenging way to practice what they have learned.
It gets students interested and engaged, interacting in a fun and
competitive setting, and appreciating the real-life value of the lessons taught.
All along game play, players are confronted with breaking news from the worlds of
politics, economics, business, the law, and technology. They must figure out what each news event means and are given a chance to adjust their portfolios before it actually happens!
They then learn the actual market response and reap the rewards or pay the price of their decisions
“It is one of the first board games that’s gamified financial education, by creating a fun environment where people of any age can learn about money, investing and stocks. Bulls and Bears is based on real life, but with none of the stress… so players can explore and learn from their own mistakes.”
