Week 5: How does money work?


During week 5 we did lots of learning in inquiry.

We learnt how to have good customer service. With that we got coins and pretended we were shop keepers. We had to use our manners and think about things we could say to make our customers want to come back.

We looked at the strong dollar. We looked at a video from Behind the News and explored how much the Australian dollar is worth in other countries.

We read a book called When the Doorbell Rang. After we read the book we had some fake cookies and got into groups and we got 12 cookies that we had to share between a group of 3. When we had shared the cookies between each of us we had to write how we split the cookies up then we had to get with another group of 3 and had to share the 12 cookies between the 6 people. Then we wrote how we felt about how we shared the cookies.

On the next day we did a lesson about price quality, quantity and customer service then we had to write meanings for those words.
