Shop and Make

I am learning about different Australian coin values to purchase from my shop.

I know I can do it when I can show different Australian coin values to purchase an item from my shop.

Today you will be using everything you have learnt about Australian coins this week to buy some items at your shop. 

Independent Task

Using items from around your house, create a shop with 5 items to sell.

Example: $2 cornflakes, 50c Ooshies, $1 book.

Each item must have a price tag with the value of 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, $1 or $2.

Draw a picture of your 5 items and label the amount next to each.

You will be ‘buying’ each of your 5 items. Explore at least two different ways you can make the total amount to purchase that item.

Show these next to your shopping item by drawing, writing or taking a photo.

For example:

The total of this item is $2, I could purchase this item using two $1 coins or four 50c coins.
