This lesson was designed for the high school special ed classroom. However, due to the nature of the content is it also appropriate for the elementary years.
Since this was designed for the special ed classroom students don't need to be able to write or construct numbers in order to participate. They will also do some fine motor work while they pick up and place cards.
each playing card has a single card or bill on it. The goal is to have students better understand what coins are worth, and how their worth compares to other coins. You can choose which coins/bills you would like your students to work with based on which playing cards you print (and adding duplicate pages if desired). For example if you wanted to work on only two values and have students really drill into which one is bigger and smaller then you could print multiple loonie pages and multiple quarter pages, and play with a deck constructed of only those values. Thus there are multiple game plays options!
Instructions are included.
Included Values: nickels, dimes, quarters, loonies, toonies, $5, and $10
