Friday Challenge


This Friday’s challenge brings together History and Geography as the challenge is to plan a trip to Dublin for a family of four.

You need to make sure your plan caters for the four special interests as described on your task sheet. As we discussed, you can present your plan on a poster or using a Powerpoint presentation. You can either work with a partner or on your own and you have almost two weeks to complete this challenge as the presentations will take place on Friday, 8th March.
