Open up the word processing module in All the Right Type (ART) and choose 1 sentence to start your story. Copy the sentence down into word. After typing the sentence, then keep adding sentences to the story (up to 3 sentences). You have about 1-2 minutes to finishing typing your sentences. After I give the signal, you will move to the right (to the next computer terminal on your right hand side) and add the next few sentences to that new story. Then REPEAT…. KEYBOARDING ACTIVITY “STORYBOARD”
CHOOSE ONE SENTENCE TO START YOUR STORY 1. “It was a bad day, Billy slept through the alarm and was late. Today was supposed to be special. Today Billy was going to…” 2. “Amanda couldn’t believe it, she had been waiting all year for this day.”

ACTIVITY 1: MONEY FAMILIARIZATION Use the internet to search for some examples of currency (money) to get some ideas for your own currency to create. I want you to pick-out one example of a currency (your favorite, either a good or bad one) to show the class. I want you to display that currency example on your screen (full-screen) for everyone to see. I want you to write one sentence down on a piece of paper about why you chose it.
ACTIVITY 2: CURRENCY DEVELOPMENT On your own, use the computer to develop one bill and one coin. You must make: 1)A Canadian 1000 dollar bill 2)The new Canadian 5 dollar coin And then come up with a new name for your money (i.e. a Benjamin, Twoonie, Nickle, Penny, Bit, Rupee, Pound, Drachma) Use the internet to get ideas and images. Then create the flyer in Microsoft Word
CLOSING TIME If you are finished either try to improve your $$$ (i.e. play with different graphics, features, counterfeit, design, layout) OR develop a new currency (I.E. different bill or coin value)
EXIT SLIP 1.What kind of things do you collect (i.e. money, cards, stamps, games) and why? 2.Do you think that a day will come that there will be no more paper or coin money (i.e. electronic money or cards only)? When?
