Money Challenges

Welcome to the 2nd Grade Math Salamanders Free Printable Money Worksheets.

The worksheets on this page are all about solving fun Money Challenges with money up to $10.

Solving challenges is something that motivates most kids - and it gives them a real sense of achievement when they succeed.


Money Challenges

The following worksheets involve solving challenges involving money amounts. They are a great way to consolidate and extend money learning once children are confident with counting money amounts.

The challenges start off at a fairly easy level with problems that involve lower value coins and smaller money amounts. The challenges later on involve more complex problems with larger values to calculate.

If you are teaching a class or group of children, then these sheets should give you some great differentiated learning activities with a money theme.

An answer sheet is available for each challenge provided.

The money challenges in each section are carefully graded, allowing you to introduce concepts at an easier level before introducing harder work, or differentiate within your class.

Using the sheets in this section will help your child to:

  • count money in coins up to $10;
  • develop their reasoning and thinking skills;
  • solve problems involving money.

All the free printable money worksheets in this section will help your child to become more confident with money, and also develop their problem solving skills.
