Big Ideas: Measurement units may be compared. Coins and bills are monetary units that may be measured. Money is not a specific standard in grades one or three, so second grade students need many opportunities to identify, count, and reason with both coins and bills. This task focuses on problem solving using dollars. In their work, students may use one dollar, five dollar, ten dollar, twenty dollar and one hundred dollar bills. The situation is set in a toy store and allows students to spend $100.00. Students will have to determine change and what denominations make up the change. Vocabulary: dollar bills, (one, five, ten, twenty, one hundred) Special Materials: dollar bill manipulatives including; ones, fives, tens, twenties, and hundreds
