Day 251 of 365: Penny for Your Thoughts

In Year 5 we're covering British History from the 1940s to present for the remaining 5 weeks of school. My in-laws had loads of information to pass on for me to share, including some rather old coins that are no longer in circulation. Some of the pennies (the big dark ones) were over 100 years old and I was given enough so that I could pass one out to each of my 18 students. They loved it and many of them couldn't wait to show their parents and grandparents. Some of them even offered to bring in their own coin collections to share.

I'm really pleased they enjoyed them...and not too shabby for the American teacher if I do say so myself.
