Making Change: A Game of Speed & Subtraction
Develop crucial math and money skills in this fast-paced game! Each player receives play money, from pennies all the way to a $20 bill (which features Harriet Tubman rather than Andrew Jackson, as is slated for the new $20 bills to enter circulation around 2020). Then a card is drawn, which shows a colorful item that was purchased, the cost of the item, and the amount paid. All players race to be the first to make the correct change and say "Ka-Ching! The flip side of the card shows the correct amount, and the correct player wins the card! The player who collected the most cards after the deck is depleted, wins! There are 11 simpler cards which only require one coin as change. You can add cards in from there, depending on the level of the players. A basic knowledge of subtraction is required to play. 2-4 players, approximately 15 minute game play. ~ Megan
