Money is always a fabulous fun concept to teach, with so many resources out there to make it happen! Last year, I developed my own money pack (in NZ$) for my students and others across the country. Full of interactive games, activities and resources to implement concepts about money.
Today I started the beginning of this unit pack again, using some of the initial activities to implement key money concepts. My students had lots of fun and were able to interact with money in a way they hadn't before. Lots of my students didn't even know all the coins!!
This resource below is what I used to teach from. It has a variety of games and activities that students can use in whole class, group or individual work to learn key money concepts. The one pictured above I used as a whole class buddy activity, where they needed to find the buddy in the room that had the matching coin.
There is also a preview of another activity in the pack that I used in a lesson also.
I have a few different money resources available on my Teachers Pay Teachers store so have a look at it if you think it might be something you are after. Lots of fun, opportunities to learn and be engaged in the concept of maths.
