Change continues: the past, present and future of coins
Three generations trace the evolution of coins for Upper Prep students
Three generations of guest speakers: a grandmother, mother and an older sibling took the students of Upper Prep through an exciting journey while narrating the story of coins and continuing change.
Illustrating how the value and form of coins have evolved from then to now, they showed the students differently shaped coins: a flower, a hexagon, a square and a circle.
The children not only grasped how the government designs coins, they later also illustrated and made their own paper coins which could be used in the future, with a design and denomination of their choice. It was an interesting exercise that helped them understand the value of money and how it has changed over time.
