Same same but different. We did the same activity for two different levels, with somewhat the same reactions.
Teacher: Do you know what a biography is?
Teacher: Do you know what are historical figures?
Teacher: Do you know who Florence Nightingale was?
Teacher: Make a guess.
Class: painter, singer, actor, dancer….
Teacher: rolls eyes
We then paused to instill the significance of historical figures of the past and why are they important to us in the present. After which, it was pretty much the same, complete the activity and discussions among one another.
