Economics: Pennies Make Cents

Students review the history of trade and money. They examine an online timeline about barter beginning in 9,000 with cattle up to the future and electronic money. In groups, they role-play past and present situations involving exchange for services or goods. Students use magnifying glasses to closely examine pennies and to sort them in various ways such as by mint or date.

Lesson Planet is a great portal that has given me a lot of great ideas for topics for which I have less preparation, such as physical science.
