Australian Money Activities
There are so many fun maths centres you can set up to help kids learn about money. One of my all time favourites would have to be setting up a class shop!
I’ve made a variety of fun hands-on Australian Money Games and Puzzles, some of which you can see below. Most of the activities are easy to prepare and require only a few materials such as dice, counters and play money.

Australian Money Worksheets
In my class, I do most of my maths teaching through hands-on activities. But I also love student friendly worksheets for reviewing concepts. With the Australian curriculum outcomes in mind I created a set of NO Prep Australian Money Worksheets. These cover skills such as ordering coins, identifying the features of coins of notes, counting small amounts of coins and notes, and giving change.
Australian Money Freebies
Below are a couple of Australian money freebies. I hope you find them helpful.
Word Wall Cards
These word cards can be used to help introduce the topic of money to your students. I love using them as a bulletin board display and also as part of my mat sessions when I’m introducing the topic of money.
These posters can be added to your maths bulletin board. Alternatively, you can use them for money ordering or sorting activities. For example, the kids can arrange the posters in order from the smallest coin to the biggest note. Alternatively, you can spread them out and the kids can sort play money onto them.
Happy Teaching :)!
