Students will play a game in which they determine the number of cents (pennies) that equal a nickel, dime, and quarter. The students will also identify which set of coins has more, fewer, or the same amount while also counting each collection and writing the corresponding value.
Starting with the Acadia National Park quarter, the students will access the park's website to understand tide pool communities and the plants and animals that live in them. After viewing the website's view of Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, the students will imagine the area of the rocks, ocean, and tide pools. They will learn more through videos and texts, then demonstrate their knowledge through class discussions, diagrams, worksheets, and illustrations.
