Here's a versatile little resource using 8 famous people and their annual wages.
Firstly there's a slide with pictures and some prompt questions:
The resources can be downloaded here from TES.
Here are some suggested activities to do with them. I'd be grateful if you could add any other ideas in the comments box below please:
Show the first 2 slides. What does the word ‘annual’ mean. Do we know who all the famous people are? What are their jobs? Who earns the most? Least? How much do you think they earn?
Whole class activity
Print each slide out onto A4 and cut along the dotted line. Shuffle and using blu-tac try to match each famous person to their wage.
“I earn ………….. Who am I?”
Use to help learners read, write and say big numbers.
Conversion between time units
Ask learners to calculate each celebrity’s average monthly/weekly/daily/hourly wage.
Work out the age of each celebrity.
Ask leaners to round to 2dp, nearest pound/ten/hundred/thousand depending on the activity you are doing.
