# Interactive video lesson plan for: 2 Dimes and a Nickel- a money math song

#### Activity overview:

covers the concept that 2 dimes and a nickel equals a quarter. I apologize to my non-US viewers, but my summer school students here in New York City didn't have a great grasp of this concept, hence the song.
