Buying with $ coins
Identifying dollar coins, using their equivalents in simulated purchases
Hand out the Miniland coins and expalin the equivalent values of the different coins.
The game consists of placing different coins next to the objects on sheet 1 (printed out beforehand). These coins have to add up to the value specified on the sheet. First of all, write down the value of the objects on sheet 2, and then put the coins which add up to that amount in place.
When finished, play the digital game to reinforce content. The aim is to make 6 simulated purchases. The total price of the purchase is displayed at the top of the board. On dragging the coins the amount is added up in the counter. If the coin counter turns red the sum of the coins is greater than the amount required, and you need to remove coins and recalculate. There are 10 coins in each pile to play with.
