Loose Change Board Game - British Coins

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 1 page | Years: 1 - 2

Students collect and count money amounts involving coins while playing this engaging board game.

This collaborative maths game is ideal for teaching your students to recognise and know the value of different denominations of coins in British currency.

Preparing the Resource

Print the game board, objective cards and coin cards on thick card for increased durability. You may wish to print multiple copies of the currency cards so there are enough of these for a multiple-player game.

How to Play

  1. Choose an objective card. This will be the focus of the game’s play.
  2. Player 1 rolls the dice, then collects coin cards that equate to the amount represented on the space they have landed on.
  3. Play continues with each player taking their turn. Once all players have reached the finish, determine which player is the winner (depending on the objective card drawn at the commencement of play).

Are your students ready for an additional challenge? Try our version of this game that includes both coins and notes!

    Would be a great learning activity but in the UK the currency is pounds and pence, not cents and dollars.

      Hi Joanne Thanks for getting in touch with us. Might I suggest that you double-check your nominated location is United Kingdom when you do the search for this resource? We do actually have a UK version of the resource. It may be that you were accidentally looking at the US or AU site. Please let us know if you have any further problems. Kind regards Janeen
