What happened in our world? March 19th, 2017

What happened in our world? March 19th, 2017

This is a simple crossword aiming to encourage students to ask about what's happening in their world. Download and then print this simple and easy to use PDF and save time preparing for the next Economics, Geography, Business, or PSHE lesson. The puzzles are excellent for a lively and informative home room period or even a substitution lesson when the absent colleague hasn't left enough work. You save your precious time and the students get to learn about last week's news events. (You might even give them colleagues to keep them happy during staff meetings - but don't let the bosses catch you!)In this week's puzzle... The US made a verbal move against North Korea, the South Korea made a move without her dogs, and Nato made a move to Estonia. In Australia, because someone dared him, an 18 year old jumped into a stream and was attacked by a crocodile. In New Zealand the police shot a bomb sniffer dog at Auckland airport. And in India, a firebrand Hindu priest was appointed to govern the most populous state.And of course the real reason for these crosswords is to prompt the students to ask why... Why did Norway's Sami people get a large pension fund to sell off investments in a US company? Why did a Chinese court punish a policeman and why did the European Parliament punish that Policy MEP and why did France's far-right party expel one of its officials - and why did the Turkish president blame the Dutch for the 1985 Srebrenica massacre? (And was he right?)The puzzles seem to work best when students work in pairs or groups of three, so they discuss the clues and therefore the events of their world. They work even better if the teacher does the puzzle with the students. There are three BONUS puzzles that focus on North America, Central America, and South America.

Exchange Rates & Banks' Profit Investigation Task

Exchange Rates & Banks' Profit Investigation Task

In this activity students will look at exchange rates; primarily the difference between banks' rates for buying and selling currency, and how this translates to a profit for the bank.They will first be required to check they can convert currencies using quoted exchange rates, and will need to recognise whether to use a bank's Buying or Selling rate. They can then work in groups to investigate whether the banks make the same profit on each different currency.Included are 3 files:-The main worksheet, a 1 sided A4 document which contains recent exchange rates for various currencies, a worked example, some quick conversion questions (so the tutor can easily check understanding before the final task), and a description of the investigation. The investigation can be done independently or in groups on a large piece of paper.-Depending on student ability, there is also a document containing a template table which could be distributed to students. This will walk students though the different stages required to work out how much profit the banks make. -The final document is an answer sheet, which contains the solutions to the main worksheet, in addition to an example of a completed table which finds the percentage profit the banks make.

Revision/Starter activity/Useful for all subjects

This presentation provides an editable template and instructions for an activity I developed to support and push students in applying theory to various industries and products. One of the key challenges I have found with my classes is the development of application skills. I have seen a positive impact in the development of application skills in their essay writing as a result of regular use of this activity. This activity engages students and is a useful piece of formative assessment to inform future planning.
