My Money: A Four-Part Series on Money for Students in Elementary School.
Tucker, James F.; Garber, Barbara W.
Information about the money most likely used by elementary school students in their transactions is presented in a four-part series. The unit is designed to supplement the teacher's regularly assigned materials in economics education. Each successive part presumes some incremental educational experience by the students. Part 1 includes lessons on the recognition of coins up to a dime and numerical relationships among these coins, coloring exercises, and exercises involving beginner's arithmetic. Part 2 contains lessons on the recognition of coins up to a quarter and numerical relationships among these coins, and arithmetic exercises on how to make change. Part 3 includes a lesson on the recognition of money up to a dollar, a lesson on the uses of money, and an exercise on making change. Part 4 consists of lessons on agencies that produce currency, the flow of currency from those agencies to the general public, and the demand for and supply of money. Test questions are included. Each part has a one-page teacher's guide that gives the general description, objectives, and format of the subject matter, and includes suggestions for classroom procedures. (JB)
