Trying to Get Young Children Excited About Coins?

by Trevor Vance

The Mint Has Published Some Interesting Online Tools For Educating Kids About Coins In Fun And Engaging Ways

                First, the Mint has the History in Your Pocket (H.I.P.) site that has games, fun facts, videos, glossaries and brief history pages. It has a coin of the day along with a little more information about the coin and it has cartoon characters talking in some videos about historical facts. There is also a "teacher feature" that has resources you can use to inform and quiz kids on U.S. and coin history.
