A fun (and slightly eye-watering) feature which lists the 20 most expensive cities in the world. This could be used with KS3 classes for speaking and listening activities or research tasks. 


Teaching ideas. 

  • Assign each student (or each group of students) a city and ask them to find out some interesting facts about it which they can then present to the rest of the class
  • Add a twist to the research and ask students to use Atlas Obscura. A quick search will reveal lots of weird and wonderful attractions and facts related to their city they could also include in their presentation
  • Using Atlas Obscura students could choose an attraction from their chosen city and re-purpose the information. They could choose to present it as a feature article, short story, leaflet, flash fiction etc.
