As the elections got closer, a lot of us were asking questions around things that Political Parties were talking about like:
‘What are taxes?’
‘What is income?’
‘What is kiwisaver?’
‘Why can’t people buy houses?’
So to help us understand what was happening in our world around us we completed tasks around these questions and we had fun with using our numeracy skills to work out our taxes, net incomes, set budgets and to calculate how much deposit we would need for a home we would like to buy and if we could actually afford it! It was really interesting!
