Welcome to Five Wonders Theme Park, the worlds most popular theme park in the world.
This teaching resource is a project that breaks down the ideas that are involved with Five Wonders Theme Park. Each category is broken down and explained to how it relates to real life and the learning that is required to use those skills. Students will need to use their comprehension and inferring skills to help them read and decode ideas from the stimulus poster. Numeracy skills include timetabling and schedules, money and budgeting, and percentages. Answer pages are also included.
Real life skills include:
- mapping references and keys
- ticket pricing including bulk prices and seasonal discounts
- transport timetables and map reading
- attraction wait times and seasonal closures

- food and budgeting
