How is it visually attractive for children?

Children enjoy seeing different currencies from around the world and ‘handling’ money. They can also see how the money saved in their piggy banks grows.

Can the OER be customized and reused?


Can the OER be used in project-based learning, interclass and intercultural collaboration?
