@1stSgt22 , I love the idea.
I got my 6 y/o grandson into coins this year. I'm going to embrace your idea and see if we can arrange the same thing in his first grade class come September.
As for kindergarten, I got him interested in minerals and geology, and some fossils and amazing shark/megalodon teeth. The teeth were provided by our very own @lordmarcovan . His class and teacher loved all the different show and tell items he brought in all year. His contributions to the class were by far the most interesting. When my son went in for parent/teacher conference, the teacher said my grandson's show and tell items were by far the most interesting and educational of all the kids. His teacher actually looked forward each week to see what my grand would bring in. The teacher was totally fed up with all the stuffed animals the other kids brought in week after week.
Good luck with your great nephew. I think you'll enjoy it as much as he will.
FYI, the US Mint has extensive education programs for kids and educators.
Take them to the coin shop and let them pick out some weird county coins that they thinks are cool. Or you buy a hand full and tell them you want to find out what they are. Op’s idea was a wonderful one. Wish I could do that
