Lesson Plan - Get It!


When I was vacationing in Europe, I didn't understand the different types of money. When I would purchase something, I would hold out my hand with a bunch of change and hope it was enough, and hope I would get the correct change! Not too smart, but see what Mr. D can teach you about making change!

Today, Mr. D will show you how to make change!

When you are ready, continue on to the Got It? section to practice!
