Interest Rates - play the 'Reach the Peak' Activity

Jonny Clark

2nd November 2017

Here's a great lesson starter or plenary if your are looking for an activity to stimulate discussion about the change in interest rates announced by the BoE.

'Reach the Peak' has 10 questions on interest rates, the BoE and the Monetary Policy Committee, each shown with the correct answer and an incorrect answer.

Players have to get every single answer correct to remain in the game!

The activity has a classroom version that teachers can run for the whole class on screen/interactive whiteboard or an 'individual' version that students can play by themselves.
