Show Me the Money

In this math lesson, learners make wallets or purses and then participate in a variety of money-related activities. First, learners make their own paper money and paper wallets or purses. Next, learners identify coins while singing a money-themed song. Then, learners consider how they would spend various denominations of coins and record their thoughts in a Money Journal. Finally, learners rotate through various Money Centers, where they record coin flips (heads vs. tails), sort coins, make a money cube graph, create a book of coin rubbings, and play store.
