Canadian Money Bundle: Teach Canadian money with this 80-PAGE COLLECTION
of money games, activities, work pages, resources and posters. This Money Unit is a great way to enhance your math centres, ensure meaningful practice and reinforcement of essential money and coin counting skills, and provide your classroom quality posters and manipulatives. Although the penny has been discontinued in Canada, I chose to use it in this product because it still remains a form of legal tender and it provides excellent practice for practicing tens, fives and ones.
MONEY RESOURCES INCLUDED IN THIS PRODUCT

They include pairs of cards with various collections of Canadian coins and their corresponding values. These cards are perfect to play games like GO FISH, COIN WAR and MEMORY/CONCENTRATION.
• Coin Observation:
These 6 activities (one per Candian coin, including the Loonie and Toonie) are a great way to introduce each coin naturally (and integrate science skills into math!) Use these activities to give students the opportunity to simply observe these coins before asking them to do anything more with them. Students are asked to draw what they observe on the front and back of the coin and to write what they notice.
• Spin & Graph:
Increase coin recognition with this graphing activity. This activity is available in color and black and white. 3 Versions: (1) Penny, Nickel, Dime, Quarter (2) Nickel, Dime, Quarter, Dollar (3) Nickel, Dime, Quarter
• Coin Work Pages:
8 pages that involve giving at a collection of Canadian coins and asking students to determine the value, and giving students a value and asking them to create a collection of coins to match.
• Coin Sorting Mats:
This can be used to give students practice with coin recognition and sorting, or to be used as their “bank” while playing games like “Race to a Loonie”. This resource is available in color and in black & white. There is one version of this mat that includes the penny, and another that only includes the nickel, dime and quarter.
• Coin Manipulative Pages:
These pages are to be used in place of real or plastic Canadian coin manipulatives. They are also perfect for accompanying any homework assignments that require the use of coins. These pages are available in color and in black & white.
• Coin Reference Pages:
These are great visual references for students while they work independently. It is essentially the small coin posters scaled down to fit onto a single page. There are two versions of these reference pages. One includes only the penny, nickel, dime and quarter, while the other also includes the Lonnie and Toonie.
