No Money

Being a fan of Star Trek, I have always wondered how can
society function in a time where there is no currency?

The key to productivity is our ability to barter, from
livestock to money. Money gives a number of us the incentive to work, it also
stops unfair trade as it’s a uniform way of agreeing payment.

Without money who would live in the big country house? Would we all travel in the same make of car? The
world might move slower, but is that a bad thing?

Regardless to the above, money is very important in today’s
society and it’s important for children to learn the value. For instance; give a child £5 and ask
them what would they like to do with it? Give them £10 then see what they say?
Children and some adults find it a complex concept.

I have found the best way is to just play. We all make our
own discoveries but only if we are interested. I have listed some ideas below:

Have five piles with different amounts of money, the
challenge is to take the pile with the greatest value without counting!

 

Work out how much change you can get from £5 after buying
sweets, a toy, a laptop!

Give pocket money for doing chores and get them to put some
into the bank!

 

There are many online games involving money http://www.familylearning.org.uk/money_games.html

 

Have fun!

    I'm extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it's rare to see a great blog like this one these days.

    I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Outstanding work!
