The answers to the Prize Draw can be found below and a resource on this Risk Activity can be found on our resources page, in which pupils can calculate the risks.
Life is a risky business! Every day, we each carry out activities with varying levels of risk on our lives. We often assess the risk of activities in our heads and decide whether we are going to carry them out or not. But are these judgements realistic?
Rank these risks in order of risk of death for each activity, with 1 being the most dangerous and 5 being the least.
