Design a Zoo

(Click link above)

Zoo GIF | Gfycat

 (This activity can be broken into sections and could last a few days. This is an open ended investigation and as a result has no set answers.)

Helpful Hint!

Remember cm² refers to the area.

E.g. the café is 4cm x 3cm

To work out the building cost.

4x3 = 12

So, 12x£10 = £120

As it is £10 per 1cm².

You will also need to use your Addition and Subtraction skills!

Remember to lay your work out carefully.

For a reminder on column method see the links in "Other Helpful Resources"
