Twisted History/ Literacy Activity USA Planned to Nuke the Moon

Twisted History/ Literacy Activity USA Planned to Nuke the Moon

Fun and engaging activity that could be used as a lesson starter or part of a range of lesson activities. Targeted at Year 10 History Cold War studies but suitable for all high school students. Part 1- give students the word list sheet only for them to fill out (print the first two pages 2 into 1- half per student ) and get them to fill it out (guide as necessary). Part 2- give them the next 2 pages (print two into one again two sides per student) and get them to write the list of words they created in order to make a twisted version of this history story. They can then share their story with a friend and complete the questions. ENJOY! Students love this activity. The same idea could be used with a range of history stories (but pick the text and audience to ensure it is respectful where appropriate). Already weird chapters of history work best for this.

Spanish editable Cluedo

Spanish editable Cluedo

Photocopuable resources and cards ready to cut up. all resources like the board game included. This game is intended to be used in conjugation with the preterite tense. Students have a clue sheet each and the character cards/room cards and weapons i.e.: classroom objects are shared out. The game follows the exact rules of normal cluedo but it is to be played in Spanish. My year 10s and 9s loved this as it took the whole lesson and was a structured spontaneous speaking lesson.
