Eight page booklet : define economic keywords, a page to research a billionaire, a SPAG exercise about entrepreneurs, a page to draw a picture reacting to the lyrics of 'Imagine', a moral dilemma based on finding a winning lottery ticket, a self-assessment of attitudes to wealth and poverty and finally a page of religious quotes regarding wealth which need pupil comments
I use this layout to train pupils from KS3 how to put added detail into their answers
The first cloud is for the initial idea that starts of their answer
The following clouds (because, and so, Therefore) make them explain and then expand on their answer
The final cloud (For example) makes them give place specific info (eg data, placename, quote) needed for higher level answers
After using the 'clouds' a few times, the pupils become used to the layout/technique and can write their answers as more detailed paragraphs
