There is at least 2 hours of resources, here - 1 or 2 lesson’s worth depending on how long your lessons are. This project works best when you - the teacher - is in the classroom, but it can be used as a cover lesson provided computer access is available.

This download included two 2-page ‘quizes’ with two 2-page detailed answers, and a PowerPoint presentation with Objectives, Outcomes, and task explanations (with approximate timings).

The way that I teach this lesson is to briefly model independent learning: how to ask Google the ‘right’ question in a number of different ways in order to find out the answer to a question; how to persist and be prepared to read information that may be good, but ultimately not answer the question you asked. It teaches students ‘how’ to learn using the internet as a research tool - you are there to guide their choices, differentiating between good and bad information.

The beauty of this lesson/ lessons is that students always end up learning loads of things that you didn’t set out to teach them - but you have a comprehensive list of answers including all the key information that they need to know. The best way to do this, I find, is to have two or three separate teams competing to gain the highest scores on the quizes - I usually reward winners with chocolate and House Points for extra motivation!

Student feedback on this is always positive - especially the story about Haydn’s head, which I am reliably informed is both “gross” and “funny” - certainly memorable! I hope you enjoy the resources and thank you for purchasing the Rainy Night Music brand.
