Imagine that you work for a travel agency and you are offering an end of ESO trip to a school. Prepare the following three documents (in Google Docs):

  • a text document, addressed to the parents, with the basic information (price per student, dates, buses to/from the airport, etc.)
  • a spreadsheet with the calculations for the final price; you have to include, at least, five basic formulas and a percentage.
  • a presentation for the students, with all the places to visit and the programmed activities.


This work will be made in groups of 2 or 3 students (one will be the owner of the document, the rest can edit).
Send also an invitation to edit to inforsanjuan@gmail.com.
