Money games are useful activities for young learners to develop understandings about money concepts. These concepts include recognising and naming coins and notes, combining groups of coins and notes to find total values, comparing groups of coins and notes to determine the larger amount (whether you have enough to make a purchase), and working out change when making a purchase.
