Literacy Maths: Going on Holiday

Plan your holiday to the Gold Coast in Australia.

You will be leaving during the October school holidays. The date you will depart New Zealand is: October 8, and the date you will be departing Australia-Gold Coast is October 16th.

Research the cost of a return trip from New Zealand to Australia.
When you visit the flight sites click on: 1 Adult.

You can choose whether you want to have a snack, meal or movies on your flights.

Each day, you need to be doing something e.g. Visiting a Theme park, Shopping, Zoo, Museum, etc.

The theme parks in the Gold Coast are: Sea World, Movie World, Dream World, Wet n Wild. Find out the cost of park admission, you can easily get in as child when you visit these websites. Sometimes you might get two theme parks as a combo deal, which might be a cheaper option. Your Aunt will provide you with breakfast each day and three evening meals. The rest of the time you will have to purchase your own lunch each day and five evening meals.

The cost of the bus will be $11.00 return to and from your attractions.

The Shuttle Bus from and to the airport will be $18 return for a child. Unfortunately your Aunt and Uncle don't have a car.

A blank Itinerary template will be given to you.
If theme parks are not for you, maybe type into Google: Things to do in the Gold Coast. You might be able to schedule a City and Sights Tour, a Beaches Tour, etc.

Enjoy planning for your virtual holiday. I wish it was true, but the skills you learn from this activity can be applied later on in your life. Planning a holiday is very rewarding and some of you maybe inspired to visit the Gold Coast when you're older if you have not already been there.

Literacy Maths, Problem of the Week: Planning a holiday

This week Room 5 are going on a well deserved holiday. This just isn't any old holiday. It is a virtual holiday-pretend. Our holiday destination is to the Gold Coast in Australia. This week each student will be planning their holiday. They will be given an unlimited sum of money which will pay towards their airfares, transport to places, attractions, meals, shopping, etc. The students will be staying with their Aunt and Uncle who live in an apartment in Surfers Paradise. The students will be away for 8 days and each day they have to be visiting an attraction e.g. zoo, theme park. During Reading and Maths, the students will be going on to the Internet to research the cost of air fares, cost of child admission into the attractions, cost of meals, etc. They will be creating their own itinerary for their holiday. Find out what they do on each day and the overall cost of their holiday.
