Are you teaching about money? Here's a set of 24 task cards to build your students’ skills in counting combinations of quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies. Great for second grade and third grade math centers!
Choosing from a grid of nine numbers, your students will determine the location of the superhero's secret number by using clues to eliminate eight of the options.
A student recording page and answer key are included
, to allow for independent use in a math center. For accountability/assessment, an independent page for recording coin combinations is included in this pack.
Math skills used in the clues on these cards include …
♦ Count mixed groups of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters both in and out of
sequence, using pictures of the coins
♦ Compare values of groups of coins, e.g. “greater than two quarters plus three
♦ Sequence of numbers, e.g. “between four nickels and five dimes”
Here are some options for using the task cards …
♦ Use in a math center for individual or partner work
♦ Use for whole class review with your document camera
♦ Use as a skills review rotation, individually or with partners, with students moving
to stations around the classroom to solve the riddles
♦ Use for morning “bell ringers”
♦ Use as enrichment for early finishers
Please note, only US coins are used in this set.
