Resource

You Decide! (KS3)

How would your class allocate a £10 billion government support grant?

Overview

This resource will allow students to critically consider what reasons and ways the government can take to support different industries and the impact this would have on the economy and wider society. Working in teams they will be challenged to evaluate and pitch what proportion of a fictitious £10 billion grant should be allocated to different industries.

Before taking part, students need to have a basic understanding of taxes and GDP. You might find it helpful to have delivered the lesson What is Tax if you have not previously covered these topics.
