I received three responses to the form that I submitted on my "Counting Money" lesson. This lesson was directed towards 1st graders so my partner and I decided to simplify it by only working with coins and not dollar bills. In our lesson we presented a variety of problems to have the children think about money in different applicable ways. On our form we tried to use the same types of problems so that it would be easier for them to answer.

I was a little surprised with the results of my form. Some of the answers were not correct and I felt like this was not a difficult lesson. I think this could be from one of two problems. The first problem may be the way our problems were worded. I tried to make the answers to the problems a little tricky so that the students would have to take time to think about them. Maybe I made them too tricky? I think my second problem is that this survey was given to college students who are use to counting money being second nature and maybe they did not take the time to read instructions and consider each answer. Either way, I think if I make a real lesson like this I will not make the answers quite so tricky.
