South Dakota Quarter Lesson Plans


Do you know that we have a collection of lesson plans based on the South Dakota quarter?


The 50 State Quarters® Program lesson plans are now available on the United States Mint H.I.P. Pocket Change Web site for use in your classroom!  Take a look at the lesson plans created specifically to celebrate the South Dakota quarter: Four Famous Faces (K-1), Follow the Leader (2-3), and What an Accomplishment! (4-6).  After that, check out the rest of these state-specific plans that are FREE to download, and are available in sets designed specifically for grades K-1, 2-3, and 4-6.  You will also find materials for older students that incorporate themes in U.S. history, government, and world history.  Visit the Teachers section to download lesson plans for grades 7 and 8 or 9 through 12.

Make a "Connection"

Find out more about another "natural face" found on the reverse of a coin.  Check out the New Hampshire quarter.  The New Hampshire quarter, launched in 2000, shows what was the state's most famous natural rock formation, the Old Man of the Mountain, until its collapse in 2003.  On the coin, the old man is looking across at nine stars and the state's motto.  The stars represent New Hampshire's place as the ninth state to join the Union.
