Zoe has invented a new maths game, ‘Money Bingo’. You write money amounts on your bingo card. The clues called are all about making the amounts with 5c pieces. For example, the clue for $1.00 is ‘Twenty 5c pieces.”
Leave a comment to let Zoe what you think of her game. Can you think of the clues for the other numbers? Can you design your own board for Money Bingo?
As part of our Inquiry into how people meet their economic needs and wants, we investigated where things come from. We brought in items from home, examined them and discovered their country of origin. We then placed the items on a world map to notice any patterns or interesting information. We then summarised our new knowledge and understanding in this video and a class ‘sticky note’ session.
Do you notice anything interesting in our movie? Have you got any questions or wonderings? To help you think, you may like to use one of our question starters:
William shows us how to record amounts of money – where to put the symbols for the dollars and cents.
Please write a comment to give William some feedback on his maths thinking.
