The U.S. government has developed educational tools like including an interactive quiz, lesson plans and bookmarks in order to enhance the public's knowledge of redesigned U.S. currency. There is also a Design Your Own Bill activity.

U.S. Mint
http://www.usmint.gov/kids/index.cfm

An interesting resource for both children and teachers, the site uses games and cartoons to present a variety of numismatic topics including the history of coins, coin collecting, coins of the world, new coins, and the process of minting coins. Resources for teachers include lesson plans, links to information on financial literacy, special projects, and images and information on hundreds of coins from colonial times to the present.

Where's George?
http://www.wheresgeorge.com/ External Link

A web site that allows people to track where paper money has been, or where it will go next. Users enter the value of a bill, the year it was minted, its serial number and the zip code of bill's location. If desired, the user can add a short comment about the bill. Once the form is submitted, Where's George adds the bill to the database and generates a report. If the bill already exists in the database, then it adds another entry to the bill's report and updates the statistics, such as the bill's speed and the distance it has traveled.
