Learning about Money

Kids need to learn about money, not only as part of their mathematics curriculum, but also for real life. The best way to learn is to have fun while you are learning, and these money games will help.

Early money skills include learning to recognise different coins, counting and adding amounts of money and calculating change.

Learning to add and subtract with money will help children to understand decimals too.

There are plenty of board games which use money, such as Monopoly. It is also possible to make your own money board games or card games. Alternatively, you can play money games on the internet.

Nice hub - and much needed since the subject of money is not taught much in schools. This is probably because the bankers, who own the educational systems, would rather profit from their ignorance when they grow up. You're right, kids (and adults) have to learn about money outside of school.

A nice 40 minute cartoon video that teaches how money and banking really work today is "Money as Debt" available on the internet. And for adults, there's a 70 minute google video "Money Matrix" made by CPA Al Wagner. Both these videos teach truth about money and banking that most people don't know, and are available free.

prasetio30 was right - money games are played with real money. But most people don't know the rules of the game, and so they loose.
