3.  A Simulation activity that seems somewhat complicated, but looks like it will be worth the effort and certainly engaging for students as they throw the dice to obtain different outcomes.  Below is the video introduction and explanation, but the documents are available at http://www.tes.co.uk/ResourceDetail.aspx?storyCode=6424677 

 

4.  Free wall charts and posters for your classroom wall

Don’t bother with this website! Millionaire for Schools. Create Engaging Teaching Resources / or NOT!

I tried this game with my students and they loved it, so I decided to call the organisation in order to make the purchase.  Sadly, they informed me that they were “no longer investing in it” and so I was left a little confused as to why the website is still running and advertised!

Just as a warning, don’t waste your time or get your hopes up, it is no longer available.
