SPEND A MILLION
Have you ever wondered exactly how big a million is? Is it cool to be a millionaire? Exactly what would you buy with a million dollars?
As an introduction to our Inquiry Unit “Earn and Learn” , our class became virtual MILLIONAIRES (through the miracle of modern technology you and your partner have been given ONE MILLION virtual dollars!).
Our task, together with a partner, was to look through catalogues to find items to purchase. Then cut the image of our chosen items and paste them into a spreadsheet. Write, in conjunction with our partner, a justification of your purchase into our spreadsheet.
Sounds easy???? Well it was harder than we thought!!!!
