A Key Stage 2 maths lesson starter on algebra, using a story of a cold apple seller who can't afford a scarf.
The apple seller manages to exchange some apples for a scarf. The scarf seller then goes and exchanges some of her scarves for a coat.
The story finishes by asking pupils to work out the formula for how many apples will be needed to get a coat.
This classroom resource is part of the KS2 maths Lesson Planning Pack on algebra, which includes two lesson starters, one great lesson idea and a CPD discussion.
