'More About Money' aims to teach students how to identify coins and bills, compare their values, and count money accurately. By the end of this lesson plan, students should be able to recognize different denominations of coins and bills, arrange them in increasing or decreasing order of value, compare amounts given as sets of coins or bills, and determine if a given amount is enough to make a purchase.
'More About Money' engages students through interactive activities that involve hands-on exploration of coins and bills. Students will participate in tasks such as comparing and ordering coins and bills, counting money, and solving real-life money problems. The lesson plan also includes opportunities for reflection and discussion, allowing students to share their understanding and experiences with money.
For students who want to go beyond the core lesson, 'More About Money' offers optional sections called Going Beyond. These sections include Let's Practice More, which provides additional problems for practice, and Take a Challenge, which offers more challenging problems that require extended thinking. These resources allow students to deepen their understanding of money concepts and further develop their skills.
