Coins, Coins, Coins

from Cleveland Museum of Art

Program image

Coins, Coins, Coins is a dynamic, project-based, videoconference which allows students to explore the history of coins and then create one representing their own communities. This is an ideal complement to a unit on local history.
The program introduces coins from ancient Greece to present-day United States, in the museum's collection. If desired, a second follow-up videoconference could be scheduled for students to show designs for their own coins and offer a persuasive, research-based presentation on their coin's local symbolism. Co-developed by the Cleveland Museum of Art and teachers from Newark (Ohio) City Schools.
