This is a really fun activity to help students add various types of coins together.
They need lots of play money, a cup and the recording sheet. The students take a handful of coins and put them in their cup. They then dump out their cup and sort and count it.
There is a recording sheet where they record how many of each coin they had, and a place to write down the total amount of money in the cup.
This is extremely good practice for counting coins and determining values of money. My students loved it! I hope yours do too :)
