Celebrating Canada's 150th Birthday in the Classroom

People are celebrating the 150th anniversary of Confederation across the country. Ranging from local and community events to national celebrations, Canadians have been celebrating in 2017. There are plenty of ways to get involved and celebrate with students in the classroom.

Another activity to extend the learning about money involves Counting Coins Using Canadian CurrencyUsing Canadian coins, students will have the opportunity to create money amounts up to $5.00 in challenging ways. On each task card, there are two ways to represent the amount: using the lowest possible coins and then using the number of coins stated. Money amounts range from 5 cents to $5.00.\
