New Lessons on Money
April 8, 2008
Now that the redesigned $5 bill is in circulation, teachers can educate their students about President Abraham Lincoln and the bill's new security features with the help of two new lesson plans developed by the St. Louis Fed. The first lesson, Abraham Lincoln and the $5 Note, includes instruction about Lincoln, the characteristics of money and the newly designed note for grades 5-8. The second lesson, Currency and the Fed, is for grades 9-12 and explains the functions of money and the Fed's role in currency.
