Money Matters in Room 15
We started off learning about money by talking about what money is and why we need it. Here are some of our ideas:
- Money is what we use to buy things.
- Money is a currency
- Everyone needs money
- Money is different in other countries
We talked about what New Zealand money looks like.
Money in New Zealand has changed. Mr Harris talked to us about when he was a child, New Zealand had a 5 cent piece...
Now, our money has changed again. Our lowest value is 10 cents. We have used resources off NZ maths to see the changes of money. Our notes have now changed. This is because of new security features to protect our money from criminals who try and print their own money.
Money also helps us with Numeracy.
Money helped us to partition numbers and understand place value.
We have done lots of interactive activities to help us learn:
The value of money
How to make amounts of money
