Stratton Money

Stratton is now a MicroSociety.  This means that they we will have our own economy, which means we will have our own Stratton money.  Students are designing what they think our money should look like.

  • 5th graders will design the 20
  • 4th graders will design the 10
  • 3rd and 2nd graders will design the 5
  • 1st and Kindergartners will design the 1

Before we started designing we did some research.  We examined US dollars  through the Federal Bureau of Printing and Engraving. Then we examined what money looks like in other countries.  Students were particularly interested in money from around the world! I found this website to help us. Ron Wise’s Banknote World.  It has a great collection of older money as well as more recent bank notes.  Enjoy!

    Its fun to design new money in classes. Maybe you can encourage them to submit the design in a contest or something.
