Practice identifying US coins and bills with an interactive memory match game.
💰Practice Identifying Coins with Our Interactive Memory Game
Have you ever wished you could practice matching money with your class in a fun way? Well, now you can! This game will require students to match coins and bills with the same value.
To play, students take turns flipping over two cards. If the picture and value of the same coin or bill are turned over, the student gets a point. If it isn’t a match, the cards are turned back over, and the next player begins their turn.
Students try to remember where the matching pairs are to score more points when it is their turn.
The student with the most pairs at the end of the game is the winner!
Through this math activity, students will show they can identify different US coins and bills and match them to their corresponding values.
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your money lessons.
In addition to individual student work time, use this activity to enhance learning through guided math groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning activities.
If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners and ELL/ESL students, we have a few suggestions for keeping students on track with these concepts:
🆘 Support Struggling Students
Help students who need to understand the concepts by providing one-to-one assistance or a partner for this activity. Additionally, provide access to previous assignments, as well as posters and anchor charts for students to recall past lessons.
➕ Challenge Fast Finishers
Challenge your fast finishers to create a hands-on memory game where they draw each coin and corresponding amounts on separate cards. When finished, they can play with a friend.
