Fourth Graders and Stock Market Game

Thursday, March 26
In Sundays' Denver Post, there was an article about cereal and General Mills. The article stated that fewer families sit down together to eat cereal. Very healthy brands such as Muesli and very unhealthy cereals such as Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, and Fruit Loops are doing well. Americans seem to buy very healthy and very indulgent products.

1. Go to the General Mills website and look at their different brands.

2. Predict how you think the company General Mills is doing (in your head), and then check yahoo finance.

Ms. Woods will ask you these questions for discussion:
Will do anything with General Mills in your portfolio? Explain
Are there any other food trends that you know about that will affect your investing?
