Counting Money : Featuring the Presidents
This unit has students exploring each coin along with the history of the coin. It includes research options with website links to learn more.
Students can make a Coin Fact Book to document all they have learned about each coin and the President it features. This unit also has color and line art of the coins to make anchor charts and suggestions for anchor charts. I have included the history of each coin in this unit.
This unit continues with various activities to reinforce counting money such as:
Sorting and Graphing Coins with a 2 point scale
Using dimes and Pennies to teach/reinforce carrying and borrowing
Word Problem Match Up with adding money amounts
