After your students know about coins and money, it's time to let them apply that knowledge using logical thinking skills.
We have combined challenging money problem solving with presidential research in order to really motivate your students. They will work through a money problem solving packet with 11 different problems using many different mathmatical and logical thinking skills. This could be used as a whole class activitity or in a math center.
The students will also research presidents found on different coins and bills from Thomas Jefferson on the nickel to James Madison on the $5000 bill. All you need to organize this project is here for you. From the student directions and samples to pictures of the money and a rubric.
