Students will use front and back of Dollar Bill to examine and decode the symbolism and importance of this newly found item.
Inform your students that they are from another planet and land on a desolate new world (earth). Upon surveying the land they come across a green piece of paper (Dollar Bill). Direct the students to describe what this new world may have been like based on the several symbols/words found on the dollar bill. For example, language, shapes, man on front, animal, numbers, phrases, etc...
This activity is meant to challenge the creative minds of the students.
