What’s the Stamp Worth?

  1. Have ready several index cards with US stamps of varying values attached.
  2. At the center provide plastic coins if available or real ones if not.
  3. Students need to show the amount of coins that correspond to the worth of the postage stamp.
  4. Students can check their answers on the back of the index card.
