Lesson Ideas For Teaching Money

February 26th, 2012 | Posted by Angela Roberts in Homeschool | Lesson Ideas | unschool

Alex is becoming very interested in money.  Alex has been learning place value for a few months now so I am sure that he will learn about money with ease.

He ‘shops’ Legos all day long asking how much each one costs.  I decided this is a perfect time to teach him about money.

First we emptied his piggy bank into a baggie and headed to the bank.  He poured his money into the change counting machine and was asked to guess how much he had.  Amazingly he was only 91 cents off so he received a $2.00 bonus!  We headed to the toy store where he bought his own Lego camper. Now that his bank is empty he is anxious to earn more.

Here are some of the FREE online activities that I have planned…
