Illuminations: Trading For Quarters

In this lesson, children listen to a poem about money, and then examine a quarter.

They find sets of coins equivalent to a quarter using pennies, nickels and dimes. They also estimate and count coin collections and count by fives and tens using actual and online calculators and pose and answer coin puzzles.
