Nickels in the Sun
2 nickels swam out of the ocean,
Two nickels relaxed on the beach,
Two nickels together were 10 cents,
How much were the 2 nickels each?
The nickels warmed up in the sunshine,
And played with some shovels and pails,
2 nickels met 3 more warm nickels,
And relaxed on their silvery tails…
How many nickels in total,
I think 2 and 3 add to 5,
Yes, 5 nickels were there at the seashore,
The happiest nickels alive!
How much were the 5 nickels worth?
The total I wanted to see,
So I counted by fives 5 times,
As I stood by the waves of the sea…
5, 10, 15, 20,
As I sat by the cool ocean water,
Then I counted one more,
Got 25 cents,
The same amount as a quarter!
|How many nickels would it take to make the same amount of money as 2 quarters?
|If a nickel is 5 cents and a dime is 10 cents, how many different ways can you combine them to make 25 cents?
