Diff'd Workbook to celebrate the Rugby League World Cup 2017 in October.

Diff'd Workbook to celebrate the Rugby League World Cup 2017 in October.

This has been created to allow students to understand the celebration that is the Rugby League World Cup and hopefully foster an interest in a minority sport at a time of year when there is not an awful lot happening in the world of sport.I've created this so that all students using it can come complete a workbook that is different from everyone else's but also differentiated to their needs. For example, there are three sheets on Legends, each one has a different task that is aimed at different levels of ability.Students should/could choose or be given a team to follow and have as their nominated team and spark some extra interest in the tournament.Pages are interchangeable so that fast workers can readily move onto the next page whereas slower workers can sheets that they may access more readily.Activities include:*Research activities on the host nations and history of the tournament.*Creating your own opening ceremony.*Matching key terms to their definitions.*Researching nominated team.*Focus on legendary players.*And moreThis resource can easily be adapted for the other home nations.Any and all feedback, positive or developmental, is greatly appreciated.
