Teaching Money is broken down into 8 areas:

  2. Note Recognition – Recognise features, describe & order notes
  3. Collections – Count and order small collections of notes & coins

We have used this breakdown to create a range of differentiated activities to meet the needs of the students and not just the Year level requirements.

These coin printables in our Australian Coins Lesson Plans & Activities Kit are focussed on coin recognition and include activities that allow your students to discover:

  • Coins are different in other countries
  • The features of coins – colour, size, shape, animals or people featured
  • Which coins are worth more or less than others
  • How to sort coins according to criteria – size, shape, colour and more
  • Different coins represent different amounts
  • The size of the coin doesn’t represent the value of the coin
  • How to record coin values using, numbers, words & symbols
