If initial exercises last too long, the worksheet could be given as homework or used as a recap at the start of the next session. If word search is too hard students could complete at home. More able learners could be asked to think of 3 more types of work scenario and say what type of pay those people would get. Suggested additional activities for longer lessons

Introduce information about performance related pay and the minimum wage ( see links below) Give out the national minimum wage worksheet to get students to calculate how much someone on the minimum wage would earn in the 3 scenarios given.
