Description

Distinguishing between the USA coins is difficult for ESL students. My students love to play Jeopardy, especially now that we have an interactive white board and they can do all the "clicking" themselves! I created this version to help my newly arrived ESL students practice money skills. United States' coins are confusing to many from other countries because they don't follow the typical pattern of the bigger the coin, the more it's worth.

There are two rounds and a final Jeopardy question in this game. The first round focuses on identification of coins by name and value. The second round focuses on adding coins and figuring out how many it takes to create a certain amount. There is also a "Name That Country" category in which students must identify the country for the currency shown (I used my students' home countries, our neighbors to the north and south, and Australia because I used to live there). The students particularly like this section because it brings all of our homes together.
