The Value of a Nation's Currency Goes Beyond Its Price

Sixth graders explore the connection between a nation's currency and its values by analyzing dollars, francs and euros. They discuss how the mottoes, designs, and portraits imprinted on currency are a reflection of heritage and cultural values. In small groups, 6th graders create their own currency to reflect their values and heritage.
