Presidents Day Math

We did many money-related activities last week. We played checkers with pennies and quarters, we covered a hundred board with a penny on each square and then he exchanged those for a dollar. We played Operation and he was the banker. We also played "currency exchange" and changed out coins for other coins of equal value.

Sorry for the lack of pictures, we were sick and I wasn't interested in the camera.
