The Stock Market Crashes (in 1929)

In my first year of teaching, when I got to the point of the Crash of ’29, 


one of my colleagues shared this stock market simulation with me. A couple of days ago, one of my colleagues 

was looking for my set of the simulation’s cards and I worried that the directions were lost. A quick Google search for “Stock Market Durant Motors Kroger Foods” brought up the directions, handouts and all.  Why share a no-tech simulation on a tech blog? Because the simulation is timeless and technology helped me find the details again. (I also downloaded the pdf for safe keeping!) 

I hope history/econ students you know can enjoy the simulation too.
