Disneyland Trip Investigation
This investigation involves pupils finding out whether £1000 is enough money to pay for a week long trip to Disneyland Paris. Pupils investigate and / or cost out the price of Disneyland Theme Park tickets, return flights, accommodation including breakfast and travel to and from the airport. They also need to work out the cost of lunch and an evening meal for each day. They are required to find out the exchange rate for pounds to euros and euros to pounds. Calculations will involve working out the value of items in euros and pounds and vice-versa.
Having collated all this information pupils need to work out whether £1000 is enough money to cover the cost of the trip.
Pupils also have to pack their suitcase making sure that it does not exceed the 20 kilogram luggage allowance. This requires pupils investigating the weight of items they are likely to pack and the weight of the suitcase itself. They need to choose the items they will take ensuring that the items do not exceed the allowance.
The resources are differentiated to cater for the needs of different pupils. The most challenging tasks involve pupils researching much of the information themselves. For pupils requiring extra help, the information needed is provided.
