2nd Grade - Making Money

This has been one of my favorite projects that the kids get super in to from the beginning.  It helps us work on adding details to keep our artwork interesting.

Dolla, dolla bills, y'all.

I tell the kids that I've looked into the future and seen that, strangely enough, everyone is going to become president someday.  When we are president, the rules change quite a bit, and one of the perks is that the president gets to put his or her face on a freshly designed dollar bill.

But this comes with a catch.  To protect the country against counterfeiters, we need to add lots of little secrets and details to our dollar bills that make it much harder to replicate.  The second graders love to share some (but not all!) of their secrets with each other during share time.  See if you can pick up any from the examples below.
