While this resource is BEST used as a hands-on, in person experience, with the current COVID-19 pandemic, using this resource as it is intended may not be an option. In light of this, I have created a digital version of these money activities that can be assigned to students via Google Classroom.

The digital version includes all the same activities in an interactive, Google slides format. In addition to these activities, the digital experience includes:

  • A detailed teacher guide explaining the activities and how to customize them for your students
  • Audio available for students who need to have instructions read to them
  • Answer key for digital version

The links to the digital files are included in the PDF download upon purchase. Please refer to the video preview to see it in action.
