Our Money lesson plan teaches students about money, including the different values and symbols. Students learn vocabulary related to the lesson and answer questions about how different forms of money relate to each other.

Our Money lesson plan introduces students to money, including different values, money symbols, vocabulary, and more. Students learn about each type of coin and bill in US currency, their unique values, and how to add them. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity to create their own new coin and dollar bill. Students are also asked to answer questions about how different money relates to each other (“How many pennies equal a dime?”) in order to test their understanding of these money relationships.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and recognize the difference between values of currency, correctly use money symbols, and combine coins and dollars totaling given amounts.

    The course has great content and worksheets. It has helped my child get great grades on the subject while they are studying money in school. Great course to aid with the math and values of different money.
