An activity I made for my world history students. It involves researching an African country and designing a banknote based upon information they learned about the country. The document includes images of banknotes I did not create to help inspire students in their design process. The directions have step by step guidance. Just give students large construction paper or poster board for their final design once it has been approved. I have left off a rubric so you can set your own standards for what you want them to do.
