This activity uses different groups of coins to show the same value. There are 7 puzzles each showing 3 different ways to make the same amount of money with coins. The puzzles can be printed on card stock and cut apart.
I have students work in teams to put together a set of all of the puzzles and then for independent work they draw coins in the puzzle worksheet to show different ways to make the same amount of money.
These could also be used in a center or a way to play mix and match to create groups of 4 (Kagan).
