Your task, in your group is to decide how best to rebuild the south of the Island.  You have four years and £84 Million to spend.

Each year you need to have a target or priority e.g. Build transport and energy infrastructure or focus on food and drink production.  You then have to plan how to spend your money to achieve this.

You should present these ideas next lesson in your groups.  Attached are a copy of the Price List and a GREAT EXAMPLE
