Check out the list of materials that we use with these printables.
Australian Money Cards
The central bank of Australia is known as the Reserve Bank of Australia. The Australian dollar is the 5th most traded currency in the world. The Australian banknotes come in 100, $50, $20, $10 and $5 denominations and the coins come in $2, $1, 50c, 20c, 10c and 5c denominations.
With these printable Australian money printables, math lessons will be so much more engaging.
With these cards, children will learn to recognise both the front and back sides of the notes as well as the coins. They can also use these cards to help practice skip counting, addition and subtraction, though you may want to print multiple copies of cards out for these activities.
These are currently all the money that is in circulation at this time.
- white paper
I printed out our Australian money cards on white paper and then laminated them for durability.
These cards can be used in a variety ways. Some of the ways we used them are:
- as 3 part / vocabulary cards
- in memory / matching games
- once laminated, use a dry erase marker to trace the notes and coins to help with fine motor skills
- as reference cards while looking at the current Australian currency
- as part of a money unit
