An activity I made for my U.S. history students. It involves researching a state and designing a banknote based upon information they learned about the state. The document includes images of banknotes I did not create to help inspire students in their design process. The directions have step by step guidance. Just give students large construction paper or poster board for their final design once it has been approved. I have left off a rubric so you can set your own standards for what you want them to do.
