This is an activity for younger elementary students who are learning to identify and count coins. To modify, lower level students do not need to add up all of the coins or create a word problem.
If you do not have enough manipulative coins in your room, try laying them down on the copy machine and running a copy for students to use. For extra fun, let students take their own handful of coins out of a jar or bucket!
