Count out the piggy bank

This game helps students work on adding coins to create a specific total.

To play students choose a piggy bank card from the pile/table.

They then count out the coins to make the amount written on the price tag and place them on the piggy bank. To extend this activity you could ask the students to make the total using different coins. How many ways can you make the same amount?

There is also a worksheet that you could use to accompany this game if you like. Students write the price into the tag and then draw or place the coins next to it.

There are 46 different cards in this resource featuring amounts up to $5.
