Money Counts Girl Scouts Daisies Leaf image

Through these activities, girls examine U.S. coins, including coin design, value, and color. They differentiate among the coins, learn the obverse and reverse of coins, and play a bingo game reviewing the coins' features. They examine paper money, learning about different denominations and which famous American's portrait is on which bill. They play a game where they associate the price of a fun good or service with the appropriate payment. Also appropriate for grades K-2.
