This hands on Math activity uses Australian coins to develop recognition of the coins and counting of coins in younger children.
It includes money cards and piggy banks for amounts up to $3.00 with some amounts having multiple variations of coins. Replica coin resources and manipulatives could also be used for a more hands on experience. This activity would work best as a small group or individual activity, but could also be adapted to be used as a whole class.
Included with the cards is a count my coins worksheet included for written responses.
