Big Ideas: Measurement is a consistent duration and distance or, in the case of money, the value of units are consistent. Coins and bills are monetary units that may be measured. This lesson opens with an opportunity for students to consider how many nickels are equal to one quarter. The task is a problem-solving situation set in a bakery in which students select items to purchase and must determine the coins necessary to do so. The values of the items are such that students will be able to apply counting by fives to count quarters and nickels. Vocabulary: nickels, quarters Special Materials: coins: nickels and quarters, dimes Task Recording Sheets are available to print
