Instructions for Use

Piggy Bank provides students with practice counting coins.

Click on the coins that add up to the amount of money on the screen. As the coins fall from the top of the screen, click on the coins that add up to the total on the right. When they add up, the coins will release and a new amount appears. If too many coins stack up, the game is over. When the bank is full, you win.


Farm Stand helps students practice adding money.

To use Farm Stand, add the price for apples and the price for eggs together, and input the number in the text field. Press the apple to see if your answer is correct.
