Coin Rubbing Pictures

Students create and share valuable pictures with coin rubbings.

  • Grade 2
    Grade 3
    Grade 4
  • 30 to 60 minutes
  • Directions

    1. Students create their own money equations to solve themselves or share with their classmates.
    2. Students can work in small groups or individually. Each student or group will need 1 quarter, 1 nickel, 1 dime, and 1 penny.
    3. To make a rubbing of a coin, have students place the coin under a piece of white paper. Thinner paper like computer paper works best. Take a sharpened Crayola® Colored Pencil and gently rub the colored tip over the coin until the coin design appears.
    4. Tip: Younger students may want to use the same color for each coin. Older students can mix up the coin colors.
    5. Students make as many coin rubbings as they need to create a unique picture. Cut out the coin rubbings with a scissors.
    6. Students arrange their coins on a piece of construction paper and glue in place with a Crayola Glue Stick.
    7. Finish the picture by adding details with a colored pencil.
    8. Students count and write the quantity of each coin, write an equation and solve it.
  • Standards

    LA: Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade level topics and texts, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.

    LA: Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

    MATH: Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction.

    MATH: Understand place value.

    MATH: Use place value understanding and properties of operations to add and subtract.

    MATH: Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.

    VA: Students will initiate making works of art and design by experimenting, imagining and identifying content.

  • Adaptations

    Enhance lesson plan to include subtraction, multiplication, and division of money.

    Students can act as mentors to students in 2nd grade by creating pictures and working with students to solve them.
