Connection: Through the study of money, your child will strengthen the ability to recognize increase and decrease in patterns through counting coins as fractions and bills (Coins for $1 and $2 in Canada) as whole numbers.
Social Studies: Concept: People from diverse cultures and societies share some common experiences and aspects of life.
Connection: All societies ascribe worth to things they value, trade, and then use tokens/money to purchase. Concept: Indigenous societies throughout the world value the well-being of the self, the land, spirits, and ancestors.
Connection: The unit is mostly based on this concept and the First People's Principle of Learning below. The interconnectedness of all things, combined with the respect for it, is the starting place for generating value. An economy is based on value. As adults we know the complexities around economy, politics, personal value, and business but for your Grade Three child we will keep a focus on the interconnectedness, the diversity, the care of the environment and ‘other’, as well as the necessity of assigning abstract value to things.
