Description

This is a vital skill for students, particularly students working on Functional Academics, such as Life Skills programs. How many times have you made a purchase, and ended up with a foreign coin? In the U.S., Canadian coins are most prominent.  If you are an individual living on a limited income, like some of our learners will, this could mean this difference between being able to wash laundry in a coin operated machine, or not. If you are a cashier, this could through your count off for the night, and could cost you your job.

I’ve targeted this with my life skills students, and they have been able to catch when they have received Canadian coins on our community outings. We then practice asking the cashier for the correct change.

This product contains 10 pages/ 40 task cards. These cards can be incorporated into centers, work boxes, etc for students to clip, punch, or circle the correct coin. Questions asked are: Is this a US Coin? , Which is not a US Coin?, Which one is a US Coin? The final 4 pages have students determining if a coin is a US coin by choosing "yes" or "no".
