Animal costs starter

January 13, 2013
I was at my local garden centre and, inevitably, the children wanted to look at the animals.

So we did and this starter was born.
Show picture 1 and ask how much the macaw might cost. If they’re unwilling to guess, ask for a price they think will be too low or too high (but close).

Then show picture two. Pause until the gasps and shock have died down.

Guess the prices of the second set of animals (pic 3)

Finally, reveal the prices and ask “How many [insert cheap animal] could I get instead of one macaw?”

I’m sure other questions will spring to mind too!
