Hello Mrs. Spicer's Class:
Yes, we have money in Canada. Our penny is also worth $.01, nickel $.05, dime $.10, and the quarter $.25. We use to have a dollar bill but now it's a one dollar coin, called a loonie! We no longer have a two dollar bill either, it's a two dollar coin called a toonie. (Change purses are a must!)
Mrs. Tami Robeck, a teacher at Delmar Elementary, once lived in Canada. She brought Canadian money to school so that Mrs. Spicer's students could see what it looks like. In the pictures below, Mrs. Spicer is showing her students the loonie, toonie and a 2 dollar bill.
