I would use this presentation in school for 1 st and 2 nd graders to introduce them to the different coins used in the United States. This presentation will give them a good understanding of the following: Gives a good visual of the coin’s physical features. Gives a description of each coin. Let the student know how many of each coin it takes to make one dollar.
