For Educators

  • Welcome
  • Activities
  • Dear Educators and Students

    The PNC Christmas Price Index® is a simple, yet entertaining way to introduce basic economics to classrooms around the country. By pricing out each gift from “The Twelve Days of Christmas” year after year, we are able to provide a snapshot of our current economy, lessons on inflation and other economic trends.

    This year, we wanted to give the Index a new home. So we created the Gingerbread Branch: the world’s first real-life bank made out of gingerbread, where the 12 gifts will be brought to life like never before. If you’re in the Philadelphia area, come visit the branch at Penn’s Landing, Dec 4 – 6, or take a virtual tour with your students at Learning about the economy has never tasted so good!

  • These self-contained activities from The Stock Market Game give you everything you need to use the PNC Christmas Price Index® as an effective teaching tool. The Stock Market Game is a program of the SIFMA Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit educational organization dedicated to fostering knowledge and understanding of the financial markets for individuals of all backgrounds.
