Costing the 12 days of Christmas

So many of us know and have sung this song to the point there are now so many versions and parodies. But how much do the 12 days of Christmas actually cost? USA today has costed it with a really interesting graphic. It would be a fun end of year activity for some students to practise their research , numeracy and graphic skills. I have done similar sorts of things in class to create an authentic learning exercise and students have always loved it. You could do the super-duper , high-end , very expensive version or the shoestring budget one. I have found from an activity like this that some students are naturally good at finding bargains and top prices and others just know how to create a star-studded , luxurious event. They enjoy talking about it and sharing their findings. It is a good way to train them to source their information properly and cite their sources. It would be also interesting to know whether online purchasing would be better than sourcing the items locally. 7 swans
