Process

As a team you will investigate the different presidents and other people on the United States Coins in circluation.

It will be your job to find out who is on our money.

You will investigate the penny, nickel, dime, quater, half dollar, Susan B. Anthony Dollar, and the Sacagawea Golden Dollar

Throughout your investigation, some of the questions that you should answer are:

Who is the person on the coin?

What did they do?  When did they do it?  Where did they do it?  Please include interesting facts on each person as well.

You will compile this information to create a directory that you will share with the rest of your class.

These are some helpful websites that you can use to complete your investigation.
