Click on the picture above and read the story of the adventures of Penny. Take your students to the online quiz about the American Penny so they can answer the questions. Now download this quiz
, give a copy to pairs or groups of students and ask them to answer the questions, print it out then give it to back to you to check the answers.
Now it's your students' turn to make the activity so other people can find out about their money!
Ask them to write a paragraph to explain about your money. Ask them to tell us how many coins there are and how many banknotes and how they are all divided. Then tell us whose picture is on each banknote or if it is the same person, tell us what is on the back and explain a little about it.
Ask them to write their article on MS Word, save it to their computer then leave a message in the project forum to tell us they completed the task.
Classes taking part can then email each other their descriptions for everyone to read and find out more about the money of different countries.
If you like, you can get together with your friends to do some rubbings of the coins or draw some pictures of the banknotes. Scan these and include them in your Word document. Don't forget to make the scanned pictures small enough for downloading quickly!
Ask your students to a quiz about your money on MS Word and leave a message in the project forum to tell us you have completed the task. Make sure they include hyperlinks to information other people can use to find out the answers!
We will exchange quizes via email as the project develops.
