Pre-Visit

Students could consider running costs such as their own expenditure weekly, monthly and then calculate annually and daily. „ The task should be discussed in class prior to the trip so students are bearing this in mind when on their visit, focusing on obtaining the relevant information during their visit to the Donkey Sanctuary. „ It would be useful if the students have already revised some features of collecting and using data.

Learning Outcomes

Students will demonstrate their data handling skills. They will show evidence of data collection, recording and the subsequent use of this data to provide solutions.
