Understanding Money Edit

Project for Pittsburgh Public Schools Elementary Students Edit

A simple project would be to collect money and make a showcase of it for elementary school students. The students could see, feel and learn of the various countries and the various types of currency. Perhaps the students can write in advance of the event and ask or beg for money from those that arrive.

Students can then begin to understand the value of money in different parts of the world.

* How much does a taxi ride cost in China? What about in the United States or in Paris?

* How much does a factory worker earn in various parts of the world?

* How much does it cost to feed yourself at a McDonalds in various parts of the world?
