This Money Unit is intended to teach young children to differentiate between common coins (penny, nickel, dime, and quarter). There are 7 games/activities for your students. There is also a 17 page book describing the front and backs of the penny, nickel, dime, and quarter.
Included in this unit are:
*Piggy Bank Graphing—Students will construct a graph of coins (there are 3 options for this activity—use the printable piggy bank with coins picture, use the money spinner, or graph using a bag of real or plastic coins). Students will graph and then answer simple addition sentences using their constructed graph.
*When I’m a Millionaire Game—This activity can be played alone or with a partner. There are 2 choices for play—students will either use the spinner to match coin to coin or to match denomination to coin.
*Money Match Up—Printable worksheet for students to match jars of like coins (can be used as an assessment of coin recognition
**Show Me the Money—Game for two players. Players will identify dimes and quarters in a race to the bank.
*Piggy Bank Addition—Addition center using pennies to represent one. Addition sums are from 5 to 12.
*Break the Bank-Game for learning the value of pennies, dimes, nickel, and quarters.
Also included is a 17 page book detailing the front and back of the penny, nickel, dime, and quarter.
*Please note that this unit does not cover adding money. It is a basic unit to introduce indentifying coins to children. Most of the games do include differentiation where students match amount to the coin or match the coin to the identical coin.
I hope you enjoy this unit and find it useful!
