This classic math game is updated with fun, kid-friendly graphics— which will make the trading of coins easier to visualize! It’s a great activity for introducing money and the concept of coin exchange.
The object of this game is simple: be the first player to exchange 10 dimes for a dollar.
The game play will strengthen your students’ ability to recognize coins & their value, to add simple numbers, and to find equivalent values among coins.
Kids will roll dice (or spin a spinner), collect the number of pennies shown on the dice and then lay them out on their game mat. Whenever a player has at least 5 pennies, they can trade up for 1 nickel. When a player has a nickel & 5 pennies or they have two nickels, they can trade their coins in for a dime.
As the game goes on, your kids will gain confidence exchanging coins, and counting on/adding by 1s, 5s and 10s!
A great addition to your classroom's collection of learning games. Perfect for math centers, partner work, workshop, or as a take-home game.
