The Hundred Penny Box

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: Nibley, Utah
Date Submitted: April 2, 2001

After reading The Hundred Penny Box to my students, I challenge them to go home and search for one penny from each year that they have been alive. So if they were born in 1992, they would have to search for a penny from 1992, one from 1993, one from 1994, and so on. Then they had to think of one significant event that happened in each of those years. They then typed up a different page for each year since they were born. We also glued their penny on each page that the year represents. We finally bound them and it made such a nice keepsake for my students to take home at the end of the year.
