Unknown famous people

I re-designed an older activity, which I owe to Diana Eastment, and tried it in one of my lab classes. I’ve had this one for a while but haven’t actually tried it with any students.  It works fairly well. Especially since most of the kids haven’t heard of Culture Club or Wham. Gave me a reason to play Last Christmas.

Activities:

a: Use an appropriate search engine on the web to find the real names of the people you could not find (Try bing.com for a google alternative)

b: Choose one personality, which interests you to find out more about them. Prepare a 30 second talk about this personality. In your talk you should not mention the name of the person so that the others can guess it. Write notes on the back of the paper. Source: Diana Eastment
