Week 2 of our Inquiry – How does money work?


For the second week of inquiry we started by doing a diamond ranking. We had nine things to organise into 9 ranks. The items we sorted were: Food and water, electricity, clothes, car, housing, heating & cooling, Footy/netball/skateboard, Xbox/Ipad/ and CD. We had to sort them in order of most importance to least importance.

For homework we asked our parents about our family budget. We had to put the amounts in percentages (%).

We also during the week wrote explanations for the following stages of inquiry – Finding Out, Sorting Out and Drawing Conclusions.

We watched two Behind The News videos about the federal budget in 2008 and 2010. In 2008 and 2010 Wayne Swan was the treasurer. His job was to look after the budget and decide where the money would go.
