Over the Spring Break, I put together this simple, yet engaging money exchange game. To play, two children take turns rolling the game die and retrieve the correct amount of coins, exchanging when necessary. The object of the game is to get all the way to one dollar.
I placed two dollar bills so that the game continues until both players get to one dollar. As with all games in our classroom, we encourage the children to shake hands at the end and say, "Good game!"
