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:

__Starter Discussion__
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.

__Using dates__
Work out the age of each celebrity.

__Rounding__
Ask leaners to round to 2dp, nearest pound/ten/hundred/thousand depending
on the activity you are doing.

How about you try to plot the salarie to age on a scatterplot? Then introduce correlation.
