Students examine the economic effects of a strong and weak U.S. dollar. They identify the currency used in countries which regularly trade with the U.S., discuss the pros and cons of a strong U.S. dollar, and calculate the prices in U.S. dollars for foreign goods using current exchange rates.
Third graders write about the similarities and differences between currency from the past and current currency. In this social studies lesson plan, 3rd graders view different forms of currency and make a list of similarities and differences between current forms of money and older forms. They write about how the money we use today is better than what used to be used.
