P2.NA.3 Money
P2.NA.3.1 Money
P2.NA.3.1.1 counting amount of money in dollars and cents
P2.NA.3.1.a read the prices of items from a supermarket advertisement or a grocery shopping list, write the prices in dollars and cents and in decimal notation, e.g. $3.45 is 3 dollars and 45 cents, and use play money to make up an amount of money to pay for a selected item.
P2.NA.3.1.b use play money to make up a given amount of money in different ways (e.g. $1 is made up of 2 fifty-cent coins or 5 twenty-cent coins), and write the amount in different ways (e.g. $1, $1.00 and 100 cents).
P2.G.1.1.e work in groups to measure the length of curves using a string.
P2.G.1.1.f work in groups to measure length/mass using appropriate units and explain their choices of units and how the measurement is done, e.g. measure the length of a longer object in metres and the mass of a heavier object in kg.
