ASIC - Ava makes a difference

'Ava makes a Difference' introduces the concepts of fundraising and donating money to help others. In this beautifully illustrated story Ava and her class decide to raise money through selling pancakes.   

Students follow Ava's fund raising venture, and, in the unit of work, are then given the opportunity to run their own fund raising event after developing the necessary skills and values to do so.

The digital activities include: Goods and services, Money match, Needs and wants and Pay the price.

The Big Book can be shared with students using an interactive whiteboard, computer or Ipad.
