What’s Inside The Counting Coins Activities for 2nd Grade Math Centers:
- Who Has More – This is a partner game. Make one stack of all the pirate flags and one of all the maps to begin. Flip one card over at a time, whoever’s card has the most value wins and puts the extra cards in the bottom of their pile. The game keeps going until someone runs out of cards.
- Find Ye Treasure – Help the pirates find their parrot who is guarding their treasure! Match the coins to the correct amount and then record.
- Find Me Ship Mate – Help the pirate find her ship! Match the coins in her description to the correct amount. Draw a picture or use coins if you need help.
- Count Me Treasure – Use our math coins to make each amount. Then, record the amount and your answer on the sheet.
