State QuartersReturn to State Quarters
These sites are about the state quarter program that began in 1999 and will continue until 2008. The coins are introduced in the order of statehood. Vote on your favorite quarter design and learn why certain symbols were chosen to represent each state. Includes lesson plans, a matching game, and an interactive story about how coins are made. The state quarter designs can be used to introduce students to the 50 states as well as the notion that the United States expanded westward. There are links to eThemes Resources on money.
