Interactive Count Money Activity
This interactive tool allows children to practice counting money or the teacher to illustrate how to count money using a whiteboard. By pushing the 'Automatic' button, you're given an amount of money to count. Alternatively you can drag any coins and bills to the workmat area yourself. The 'Total' button then reveals the correct answer.
