Presidential $1 Coin Lesson Plans

Overview

Do you know that we have a collection of FREE lesson plans based on the Presidential $1 Coin Program?

Activity

The Presidential $1 Coin 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 Presidential $1 Coins:

Make a "Connection"

Find out more about each of the Presidential $1 Coins and their presidents in the "The Coins Are Coming" section.  Unlike presidents before him, Jackson did not come from a well-to-do family or have a strong formal education.  And tha's part of what made him so popular with voters.

He also used his veto power to take command instead of relying on Congress to set the natio's course.  Jackson vetoed a dozen bills, more than the first six presidents put together.

Introduce your class to the duties of the Federal government and the responsibilities of each branch of government with the "Representing Our Nation" lesson plan.  Then have students test their knowledge of the three branches of the Federal government by playing "Branches of Power".
