The concept of "money" can be tricky for little learners. After a brief introduction on all the Australian coins, it is handy to take tan in-depth look at the dollar coin.

A stand alone teaching unit on "dollar coins" links in nicely with addition, as students can begin to understand adding dollar coins together to make another total.

Look at the dollar coin and talk about its characteristics so that the students can identify them easily. Practice counting with dollar coins and writing the $ symbol. Students LOVE matching dollar coins with price tags, in a little toy shop you can set up on a table in the classroom.

Extend your more capable learners by showing them two price tags, and asking them how many dollar coins I will need to buy both. This will challenge them to use their addition skills.
