Gr.9-10 Exchange Rates – Around the world in 1 000 dresses



1 lesson – learners need to have access to the internet.

This activity is the ideal way to incorporate technology in your classroom. Learners are asked to look up a number of exchange rates on the internet and use that to answer the questions. Since everybody’s answers will depend on the exact moment they looked for the exchange rates, it put the focus on the method rather than the answer. (There is no memo for the activity for the same reason)

In the last part of the activity they get to apply these methods to fictional exchange rates.

This activity can be used as an investigation in grade 9 or revision in grade 10.

Disclaimer – boys might not be very impressed with the context of evening dresses and shoes.
