Spanish Influence on United States Currency: The Origins of the "Dollar"

Sixth graders research the Spanish influence on early colonial America and the process of establishing the present U.S. currency.

Students then examine different exchange rates, and convert the price of an item from U.S. currency to another country's currency.
