This is my Trade and Enterprise presentation. I had the task to list 10 items for each question. This was assigned to help me realize the NEEDS and WANT of the items I purchase. Example games is a want because it is something that I would want, while Toilet paper is a need because it is needed to keep clean. Do you see the difference? I hope you enjoy.

Google have created many apps for education, like Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Docs and many more. Last week I attended the GEGNZ student summit. I had an amazing time and learnt many things, like how to use other Google apps for education.
One of my highlights was learning how to use Scratch. Scratch is an online website that allows you create stories, games and animations. I was also lucky enough to speak and present. I spoke about how to use Google Slides.

To help us understand the diffrence between needs and wants we looked at shopping for our families. I worked with Iisa to complete a list. At first a budget was not stated however we had these gidelines that we needed to follow
- Shopping list includes ingrediets for 5 main meals; shopping list has at least three different types of fruit;
- Shopping list has 4 sanitary products included; shopping list has enough bread and milk for the week
- Think about: quantity of particular items, e.g. number of bread loaves, litres of milk, grams of mincemeat, etc.
After completing the list we recievied a budget and had to think of which items were necessary and which weren't. My grocery list totalled to $109 but my budget was $200 dollars. I have $91 dollars left. I have chosen to save the money for later.
