Gotham City Superstore

Posted by Miss Gardiner | Posted in Money | Posted on August 17, 2016

This project allows students to explore the concept of money through them creating products to sell and buy in their classroom superstore. They will need to choose prices, order items according to their value, add different money amounts, work out totals, pay for items using different money amounts, work out change and round to the nearest five cents. Students will also have the opportunity to work out totals using calculators or check answers using calculators. This activity can be differentiated in many ways whether that be the expectations you set for products prices, amounts you give them to spend, items they need to buy etc. The instruction sheet also contains an invoice students will need to fill out when purchasing items.

Sweets Shop

Posted by lisar | Posted in Addition, Money | Posted on September 17, 2015

This activity can carry on from the chocolate bar & lolly shop activity (featured in the Fractions section) by giving each “lolly” a price. Alternatively, you could have the students design a sweets shop (with cakes, slices, etc) or an ice-cream shop (with a range of flavours, cones and toppings!). Students may either write the individual prices onto the lolly shop sheet or may design their own price list. These can be adapted to ability levels. It is up to teachers how far that they want to take the next stage. Ideas are:

  • Ask other students to choose a number of items from their shop, which they would like to “purchase”. Owner of the shop has to add up the total of the items. You may even have them work out the change.
  • Set up a “shop” where the shop items are drawn or constructed out of materials. Using play money (and calculators if needed), students are given the opportunity to go shopping at each other’s shop and “buy” items using their play money. When an item is purchased, shop owners can cut out the item from their sheet and physically give them the item. They must also work out the total price of the items purchased, which the customer is to give them and the shop owner works out the change to give back.

* Please note: if you are allowing students to cut out their items from their poster, you may want to photocopy them just in case!

My Party Plan

Posted by lisar | Posted in Money | Posted on September 17, 2015

Here is an activity for Money. It’s called My Party Plan (Project). The synopsis is below:

 

Budget:

L- $5 to $10
M- $20
H- $35


Task 1 : Students will design a themed party and draw a rough copy of what the decorations for the party will look on the template provided.  Students think about what specific decorations and supplies they need for their party and add it to their wish list.

Task 2: After they have made a list, students choose those selected items from a price list and write the prices down next to the items.

L: Students write the items they would like for their party, along with the price and can draw pictures to match the items.
M/H: Students can complete an order form and also add the total they have spent.  If ordering more than 1 of the same item, students need to write this on their order form. For example, streamers x3 ($1 each) = $3.00

Task 3: Work out if you have any change.

Money Warm up Games

What coins do I have in my pocket?

Select some coins prior to the game and place them in your pocket or a container where students cannot see them. Tell students the total amount you have. On paper, students record possible coins and notes that make the amount you have. After a given time, students share their ideas. After sharing, reveal the coins you have in your pocket.

How much do I have in my pocket?

In this variation, students are told how many coins but not the total amount. Students brainstorm possible combinations of coins and amounts.

The change is ….. how much did I spend?

In this more challenging variation, students are told an amount you received as change. Students then brainstorm possibilities for how much you may have spent and what note or coin you used to pay for it.

Plan a day out

Posted by lisar | Posted in Money | Posted on September 30, 2014

Students can create simple financial plans and budgets to plan a day out. This could be to the Royal Melbourne Show, Movies, Zoo etc.

Students plan all the necessary costs for the day such as transport, food, entertainment and create a budget estimating their costs.

Students could then research the costs to work out the total of their day out.
