Description

In this activity children save for a charitable donation or classroom project by collecting pennies in a jar. Students are asked to predict such things as how many pennies the jar will hold and how long it will take to fill the jar. When full, children count the pennies and convert the total to dollars checking their predictions against the actual outcome. Students should have some familiarity with dollars and cents.
