Your students will create an 8 page picture book, fill in the blanks, color and glue in the pictures, all while learning about the history of U.S. coins. Find out when coin production started, which coin was introduced much later than the others, when the presidents first appeared on the coins, and which coin was even smaller than the dime!

After they have learned about our coins, you will create a timeline! Timeline cards are provided with dates for lower grades and without dates to really challenge your students!

Many printable activities are included, such as two trivia sheets on coin history, adding up coin values using images of the presidents, designing their own coin, and writing a persuasive letter to the president about why they should be on the next dollar coin!

Once unzipped, these files are in pdf format.

Note: This file includes the product On the Money Create A Book: United States Coins and the Presidents so please do not purchase both.
