Live the lotto dream v3 (childcare)

A great project that covers many L1/2 numeracy elements. You win the lottery, buy a nursery and have to furnish it from catalogues and/or Internet sites.
Learn about budgeting, displaying data, working with areas and floor plans, bank statements, rounding, estimating, and much more. Everything must be written up as a comprehensive report with a clear conclusion (a great guidance page on report writing is included in the resource).

Although written in 2008 (when Functional Skills had barely been thought of!) the problem solving nature of this investigation, and its offshoots, makes it ideal for Functional Maths (number, measure, money, area, etc.) and Functional English (report writing).
I will add Functional Skills criteria references when I get time. Volunteers welcome!
