In this practical worksheet activity, students will embark on a journey into the world of comparison shopping, a crucial skill in today's consumer-driven society. Students will identify and select three websites for each product category (laptops, smartphones, and headsets) from which they can potentially make a purchase. Armed with research, students will compare these websites based on key criteria, including product price, star ratings, and warranty periods.
