Exploring the Features of Australian Coins
This QR code activity can be used as an introduction to explore the features of Australian Coins.
Print, laminate, cut and place the QR codes around your room. Students will need to use a mobile device to scan each QR code to reveal an image of an Australian Coin. Students will then examine the image of each coin on their device and sketch it onto the appropriate coin outline on their worksheet. Coins are ordered from least to highest value..
I have included 2 pages of QR Codes. One is unlabelled and the other is labelled for your reference.
There are three differentiated worksheets to cater for mixed abilities in your classroom. Each has instructions included on the sheet.
Worksheets are numbered to indicate the difficulty level- 1 being the simplest and 3 being the most challenging.
Worksheet 1: Each coin is labelled so students know which QR code matches each outline.
Worksheet 2: Some coins are labelled e.g. the $2 coin and the 10c coin to assist with ordering of values. Students will need to record the name of the remaining coins.
Worksheet 3: There are no labels on each coin. Students will have to sketch and record the name of each coin onto their worksheet. Students will have to determine where to sketch each coin using the knowledge that they are in order from the least to highest value.
This resource can be used in a Foundation, Year 1 or Year 2 Classroom. It is linked to the Australian Curriculum in the Money and financial mathematics strand of Mathematics.
Australian Curriculum, Year 1 Mathematics Achievement Standard: They recognise Australian coins according to their value.
