About this Resource

Canadian Money Memory and BINGO Boards – There are two activities in this set of boards. Canadian Money Memory: The first activity is a memory game. When the file is opened locate the memory board and print two copies of the board. Cut out the individual cards on the boards and put them in a Ziploc bag. When ready to play Memory put the cards face down on the table and mix them up. The first player turns over one of the cards and then a second one. The player tries to find a match. Once all the cards have been matched the player with the most matching pairs is the winner. The activity is designed to increase a student’s ability to match and identify Canadian currency, currency symbols and words associated with Canadian currency (money and coins)
Canadian Money BINGO: This activity is based on the bingo game. It contains 6 boards. There is one Caller Card and 6 Canadian Money Bingo Boards. The images for coins, money and the sign for the dollar and cent have been included in the boards. The boards have been created to increase a students’ ability to match and identify Canadian currency. To play the game, make a copy of all the boards. Make an extra copy of the Callers Card. Cut out the pieces on the extra caller’s card and put them in a Ziploc bag. When ready to play Canadian Money Bingo pull the pieces out of the bag one at a time. The caller says the name on the top of the card that was pulled and covers the matching piece on the Callers Card. The game is finished when one student calls Bingo! Created by Maureen LaFleche
