Render to Caesar what is Caesars...
Some of our 6th grade students are doing a project on Ceasar Augustus and wanted to make a coin. They started by making a prototype out of paper and tissues. Next, they searched the internet for examples of ancient coins with Ceasar imprinted on them.
After finding 2 examples they liked, the students laser cut them on cardboard so they could decide which one they wanted to make out of wood.
After choosing one of the coins, they did some final alterations and "printed" it out.
