Money, Math, and My Friends!

Mrs. Thompson's 4th grade class had fun working with partners during a math lesson. Each person earned their own money and then came up with random amounts for their partner to show them. Demonstrating various amounts of money using $100, $10, and $1 helps us to learn and understand place value.
