A Biography Project

Our coursebook presents the Past Simple tense via a number of famous historical figures like Mahatma Ghandi and Mother Teresa, and completes the unit with a biography project. 

In my attempt to make it a bit more motivating and to offer some guidance to my students, I've prepared a presentation on Adobe Spark, providing, among other things, a list of recommended websites for research and graphic organisers for note-taking. 

Feel free to go through it and use it for inspiration!

Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras is a Carnival festival that lasts for several days and ends the day before Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras is always on a Tuesday in February or March. It is the day before the start of Lent. Lent is a period of 40 days before Easter when many Christians fast. 

People celebrate Mardi Gras by having parties, attending parades, wearing costumes and masks, and eating King Cake. Because Lent is a somber time, Mardi Gras is a last chance to live it up and celebrate. Two of the largest Mardi Gras Carnival celebrations are in New Orleans and Rio de Janeiro
.

You can find all this information and more in the presentation below, together with downloadable worksheets, printable masks and a short video on the basic samba steps. Suitable for A2+ teens.
