“Yeah, but I NEED this!!!”
How many times have you said this to someone when, in reality, you don’t need something, you just want something? In this activity you’ll look at the differences between wants and needs and prioritise a list of things you want.
This is a good activity for kids to complete independently, though it would be good to have friends and family around to discuss ideas with.

Learning@Home from Cool Australia
Learning@Home resources are designed for parents and teachers to use with children in the home environment. They can be used as stand-alone activities or built into existing curriculum-aligned learning programs. Our Learning@Home series includes two types of resources. The first are fun and challenging real-world activities for all ages, the second are self-directed lessons for upper primary and secondary students. These lessons support independent learning in remote or school settings.
Cool Australia’s curriculum team continually reviews and refines our resources to be in line with changes to the Australian Curriculum.
