Mr. President

Who is the man on the penny? Are there people on other pieces of our money, too? What is a president? Students learn to identify and know the value of a penny, nickel, dime, and quarter as they explore four of our presidents. They will listen to, view, and discuss George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, their presidencies and memorials including their images on various coins as they learn about money. Students also count to 100 by 1s, 5s, and 10s as they learn the value of various coins. This unit integrates social studies, math, and reading. NOTE: This unit should be taught after the 100th day of school and is most appropriate during the celebration of Presidents’ Day, the third Monday in February.
