Live the lotto dream (the original!)

Live the lotto dream is a fabulous project that covers many E3/L1 literacy and numeracy elements. You win the lottery, buy a flat and have to furnish it from the Argos catalogue! Learn about budgeting, 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 2006 (before Functional Skills were 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.
