Lesson Starter on UK regional economies - Don't Draw the Short Straw

Jonny Clark

11th March 2015

Here's a short, engaging lesson starter looking at some of the economic differences of the regions in the UK. This resource looks at pay levels, regional output, regional productivity and employment levels in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and some English regions. The activity uses a new game format that we've called 'Don't Draw the Short Straw'.

Thanks to our friends at the ONS for providing the data.
