Children are set the challenge of setting up their own pizza business. Using this context,  they work through a series of activities in which they design and make a logo for business, grow some of the ingredients to make pizza, design and make pizza and packaging to sell in it. They then advertise their business and and practise working with money and paying for items using different combinations of coins.  Activities may be used as standalone lessons, but they are best carried out as a project.
