Designed to support children to debate the key aspects for and against a local currency this lesson also invites participants to hone their role play skills by assuming a character as well as giving them the opportunity to design a monetary note. Time to debate the real benefits of a local currency!
In your very important position on the town planning board, it is your job to persuade the local community to use a local currency. The only problem is, they don't know a thing about it! Can you use your knowledge to convince them they would be making the right choice? Learn to shape persuasive language for maximum impact.
The concept of local currencies is a tricky one and the potential benefits are hard to grasp; this lesson makes the learning visual and practical thereby tackling some of the more challenging content in Year 6 maths in a fun and engaging way.
