A complete Maths lesson for introducing money and coins. The lesson covers the different coins and their value using pennies. There is an activity for swapping coins for a single coin to demonstrate that different coins can be used to make up different amounts and shows children that we need to add the amounts together and not simply count the coins. The lesson includes three differentiated money worksheets and a short plenary.
Money Activity Cards
A set of money activity cards covering coins only.
The cards are split into three sets - cards showing one dot work with coins up to 5p and values below 10p, cards showing two dots work with coins up to 10p and values below 20p and cards showing three dots work with coins up to 20p and values below 30p.
There are four activities in each set -
Activity 1 - what could I buy with …p activity
Activity 2 - adding prices
Activity 3 - how much money is in the purse?
Activity 4 - can you put the correct amount of money in the purse?
I laminate these cards for use in Maths lessons and children select the challenge that they would like to complete - one dot, two dots or three dots.
Suitable for Early Years and Year 1 children.
