Many of you already know about the wonderful free literacy, numeracy and typing activities that are available at www.doorwayonline.org.uk
A new resource, Doorway Supermarket, will be available to trial from mid-October, and the developer is looking for teachers in Scottish schools and colleges with National 2 courses to help. You’d get to trial the resource, and would be part of a feedback group.
The activity has been designed with students following a National 2 course in mind, and basically simulates a trip to the supermarket. As well as covering money, change etc, the skills of estimation and rounding are practised. The prices in the activity are current, and it aims to give as realistic an experience of going to the supermarket as is possible.
