Years 5 – 6 Hands-on Australian Money Pack


Product Details

Includes 10 hands-on, differentiated activities to develop problem-solving skills and a solid understanding when organising money, making financial plans and calculating percentages.

This pack also provides extra tasks that revise money concepts taught in the earlier years for students who may need additional work on counting, sorting, rounding, adding and subtracting Australian currency (including calculating change).

Tasks have been carefully created to meet ACARA standards for these grade levels and are aimed to build proficiency, fluency and confidence in students solving problems using Australian money.

This pack not only provides opportunities for hands-on learning but also develops all five proficiency strands: communicating, problem solving, reasoning, understanding and fluency.
