The Money Game
3 September 2009Add to My Folder
This interactive glossary game challenges children to match words/phrases to their definitions. Presented alphabetically, the 24 words/phrases are all related to the topic of Money.
Clicking on a word will give three possible definitions – each designed to promote discussion. The game also comes with a printable glossary, featuring all 24 words with their correct definitions. This resource has obvious links to numeracy and will help children make sense of the many ‘credit crunch’ news stories that are so topical in the media.
Shared teaching and learning
- What do the children know about the credit crunch and money issues? Where do they get money from and how do they save money?
- Talk about the vocabulary of money and how this could be presented in a dictionary or glossary – eg, alphabetically.
- Look at the word list. Try to create your own definitions.
- Ask the children if it is important to read the rules before playing a game or should you find out as you go along?
