This is a single or multi-player coin-trading game where students roll a die to find out how many cents to add to the gameboard. When the penny spots on the gameboard are filled with coin manipulatives (or when a 5 or 6 is rolled) the student trades the pennies for a nickel and so on. As a single player, he or she will stop the game when 50 cents is reached. As a multi-player game, each student will use their own gameboard to race each other to 50 cents.
This game requires the printable gameboard (preferably laminated), a die, and manipulative coins.
