Step One: Gather materials:
- Empty Container with a Plastic Lid
- Coins (1, 5, 10, and 25 cents)
- Permanent marker
Step Two: Make four rectangles ("coin slots") on top of the lid (off to the right-hand side).
Step Three: Use the permanent marker to add labels on the right-hand side of the paper (= $0.01, = $0.05, = $0.10, = $0.25).
Step Four: Use the scissors to cut out the four rectangles. It’s easier if you fold the plastic lid.
Step Five: Tape the coins appropriately to the left-hand side of the paper, creating a legend or key for the value of each coin.
Step Six: Label each slot ($0.01, $0.05, $0.10, $0.25).
