The investigation gives the children opportunities to practise key aspects of number including adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing and finding percentages of numbers.
The investigation takes the children through step by step, they are in complete control of their spending and decide exactly what is included in their park. It also gives the children an insight to running a business with taxes, insurance and running costs all included. They learn about the power of marketing and the effect this has on the visitors to their park and their profit.
We have also included a spreadsheet which children can type into to work out their profit or loss and a smart board file to help with your teaching.
Finally, we have added a ‘design an advert’ competition where the winner wins some spending money for their park.
