This lesson needs a bit of work beforehand but it works really well. If you intend to use it you need to create a set of cards with the years that you'll find in the lesson plan, and a second set of cards with the 'facts' that you&'ll find in there as well. Place the two sets of cards in separate envelopes. Place both envelopes on each table. They need to look for cognates in the small texts from which they can work out when things happened in this person&';s life. The lesson was planned in January so take that into account if you try the little game out before doing it.
