The newest game on the H.I.P. Pocket Change™ Web site is called Hoop and Darts. Based on a game originally played by Native Americans, each of two players in this electronic version throws darts through a swinging hoop in order to win the other player’s darts. Come and play this game, created in the spirit of the Native American $1 Coin Program.
The United States Mint, "born" on April 2, 1792, celebrates its 217th birthday. This month, join the H.I.P. Pocket Change Pals for the celebration and a stroll down memory lane with the Historic Highlights interactive timeline.
Thanks to Financial Literacy Month, April is also a time to focus on financial literacy. But what is financial literacy? Visit the Financial Literacy page to find lesson plans, games and classroom activities that help your students learn more about earning, saving and spending.
