About this Grantee

Through “Show Me the Money,” Mr. Smith and Ms. Klingensmith use numismatics to introduce science and social studies students to both the ancient and modern worlds. Students clean, classify, and create a timeline for bronze coinage of ancient Imperial Rome and explore the modern world of the past century through the coinage of dozens of countries on six continents. In addition to gathering, organizing, and displaying data, students produce written compositions and create a board game specific to a coin type from a country of their choice.
