 Suggested Money Lesson Plan and Worksheet Instructions   This worksheet lesson will help your students practice counting change and making change.  The first column of the worksheet is the change your student has.  The next column includes the cost of an item he or she is buying. Students should fill in the next two lines.  First calculate the amount of change that should be given based on the cost.  Then students should calculate the change that would be given in return.   You may make the activity more challenging by requiring the students to pick the change that would require the smallest amount of change in return.   This worksheet includes bills AND coins.  See our other worksheet if you only want to practice making change with just coins.  Choose either a basic worksheet or a custom worksheet.  With a custom worksheet, you may choose the number of questions, the types of coins, the types of currency, different picture types of coins including coin backs, etc.  Make your selection, then press "get worksheet".  A random worksheet will be generated.  Each time you press the button a new worksheet will be generated.
