Can be used as part of a lesson on giving change and subtracting monetary amounts. Pupils can watch the clip and then create a price list for several fictional products. They can then be asked to draw or write down the coins they are likely to have in their pocket or purse when they visit the shop. Based on this, pupils can write down (this can be set out on a pre-designed sheet to make it clearer for pupils) the products they want to buy and the coins they would give in order to do this. Finally, they would work out the change that they would have to be given.
