Economic Spotter: Money in Revolutionary Times

Students identify the functions of money. After reading a story set in the Revolutionary War, they describe what the money of the time period looked like and how it was used. Using the internet, they compare Continental Congress money with a Spanish half dollar. They write a paragraph citing which money they would like to have if they were living in Valley Forge in 1778.
