Over the last two weeks, we have been working as a group to design and create a lunar theme park. To do this we were given a budget of £500,000. The very next day we were told that we had an extra 10% to spend on our theme park. We were really happy, as it could instead have been 10% less.
Next, we planned our park out on a piece of squared paper thus enabling us to space out our park. We made sure it was fun for all ages. The best theme park would attract the highest entrance fee. Some of our team presented the theme park to the teacher and the class. We used our best persuasive language. From this we could calculate the gate revenue. Once this was complete, we calculated the maintenance prices, as well as the cafe and shop wages and income.
Overall, the project was a great success and amazing fun. It taught the class life skills and business skills. We handled huge numbers in our calculations.
