Investment Bonds "Strong Bonds" - Economics Simulation

  • Levels: A Level
  • Exam boards: AQA, Edexcel, OCR

Here's a great activity aimed at introducing some of the key terminology and learning points required for students learning about Investment Bonds as part of their A Level or IB course.


This resource has three sections:

  1. An introduction to investment bonds and the terminology useful to A level Economics students
  2. The 'Strong Bonds' game where players invest up to £10,000 on a investment bond portfolio simulation?  Can you make a positive return on your £10,000 over a 5 year period?  Try the game 2 or 3 times to see if you can work out the best way to maximise the investment money.
  3. A short multi-choice quiz on investment bonds that uses information from the terminology introduction and game content.

Note:  When using this resource, use 'Open Presenter View' for best viewing.
