Understanding the role of the equals sign

Understanding the role of the equals sign

I couldn't find any materials on this when I needed to teach my year 3 class what the equals sign REALLY meant. I have included the lesson plan I used, the 3 differentiated worksheets and a Powerpoint I made. Also have included a homework set of resource sheets (could alternatively be used in class as a reinforcement at a later date.) UPDATE: I have added a more challenging resource for year 3/4

Change from $5 Australian Money Games

Change from $5 Australian Money Games

Games for calculating change for five dollars in Australia: 4 different Four in a Row game boards (with differentiation) and a 20 card loop game / domino set. The first two Four in a Row boards are more challenging as some prices require rounding to the nearest five cents before the change can be calculated. Boards 3 and 4 (which feature the same illustrations as the first two boards respectively but different prices) have prices that are already to the nearest 5 cents. Answers for all four boards are included on the last page of the file. Intended to be laminated and used again and again. In this activity children can either work as pairs against pairs or one against one to get four correct answers in a row - horizontally, vertically or diagonally. It works especially well if they roll a dice each time to find which column they have to pick a calculation from (the columns are numbered 1-6). If there are no questions left in the column whose number they have rolled, they could either skip a go or roll again. They could either use a different coloured whiteboard pen to record their answer on the board or add an initial or symbol if using the same coloured pen as the opponent. I recommend printing in A3 but they'll work fine in A4 too. The loop game / follow me game can be started at any point as it forms a continuous loop. A child reads out the price they are due to pay with children looking at their own cards to see if they have the corresponding amount that would form the change if $5 was handed over. This game requires no rounding as all prices are to the nearest 5c. This would work well as a starter or plenary. To make it competitive children could be timed as they try to beat a previous record. Or groups could compete against each other to complete the loop as a domino game. I hope your students enjoy improving their money skills with these resources and that you can save yourself some time too! I would be very grateful for a review if you get a spare moment. Thank you.
