Counting Makes "CENTS" with Abraham Lincoln and George Washington
In honor of the upcoming President's Day holiday I created a Early American patriotic-themed coins-counting game.
Students will practice adding "Washington" Quarters and "Lincoln" Pennies as they make their way around the President's Day game board using coin cards and a die.
I also created "value cards" that match the coin cards so students could play a "concentration" type matching game as well. I also plan to use the value cards for a "SHOW ME the MONEY game - where students will use plastic coins to match the value I display.
I plan to print two sets of the cards. One set will pair coins with their value (back to back) to create an answer check/ flash card for more coin-counting activities.
My Counting Makes "CENTS" with Abraham Lincoln and George Washington is available now in my TPT store.
