Numeracy: General numeracy / maths

General: Generic resources for literacy, numeracy and beyond

Context: Leisure Travel Tourism

Free tags: Australia

Resource type: Reading comprehension, Worksheet or assignment

Level: L1, L2

A really unusual reading comprehension exercise that also tests a range of maths skills (dates, large numbers, distance, etc.). Although the general reading level is around Level1 it is based on an Australian news article about a lottery winner and contains a lot of unfamiliar Australian vocabulary. Thus it also stretches Level 2 learners. An optional glossary is provided; this includes words such as swag, Slikpik, shire and half a dozen more.
