This is a good activity to get students to understand counting money using the least amount of coin possible. Students can work in pairs or groups to figure out how to add the least amount of coins together to get to the value they drew from a pile of cards. The cards have values each under $1.00. This activity can be modified according to the teachers needs. Students will have to already know or have an understanding of the values of each coin and conversions between the values (e.g. 5 pennies = 1 nickel).
