World View: An International Program for Educators

What's New?


World View Foreign Currency Kit
World View is in the process of creatIng a new outreach tool to supplement classroom instruction using foreign currency from around the world. These currency kits contain bills and coins from over 35 countries and 5 continents that were collected by faculty, staff, and friends of UNC and can be borrowed from World View for up to three weeks. The kits also include books, a cloth world map, and an educator packet with materials to be used with the currency.

World View’s currency kits will be suitable for integration into lessons at the elementary, middle, and high school grade levels. Kits can be used across the curriculum in subjects such as mathematics, social studies, art, science, religion, and more. We are currently in the planning stages of this initiative. The kits are currently being tested in classrooms across the state, but they will be available to check out in fall 2010. If you have questions about the currency kits, please contact Julie Kinnaird at or 919/962-6785.
