Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

NB: You do NOT need to access View Original or View in Google Slides- this is a stand alone activity. Students can be asked to work with class money or paper money or with only numerals. This requires students to use multi-steps to calculate the open ended answer. As many toys have multiples, you could alter the starting amount for older students. This fits into both Year 2 and 3 ACARA Content Descriptions and Achievement Standards: Yr2 CD: Count and order small collections of Australian coins and notes according to their value Yr2 AS: Associate collections of Australian coins with their value. Yr3 CD: Represent money values in multiple ways and count the change required for simple transactions to the nearest five cents Yr3 AS: They represent money values in various ways.
