The website https://apps.mathlearningcenter.org/money-pieces/ is a great resource for teaching children about money and currency values. It features interactive tools that make learning about money fun and engaging for students. Here's a brief guide on how to use the website effectively:
Understanding the Layout:
When you first open the website, you'll notice that it is divided into two. The left side displays different denominations of coins and bills. The middle section is where you can interact with the different money pieces.
Using the Money Pieces:
The Money Pieces section is where you can drag and drop the different coins and bills to create different amounts. You can use this section to practice counting money, making change, and comparing values of different currencies. For example, you can drag a quarter and a dime to the middle section to create a total value of 35 cents.
In order to exchange money, make sure you circle the coins in question to exchange for larger coins or dollars.
You can also toggle the money grids off and on.
