“Watch the TEDEd video (below) as a class. Then, go through the written account (overleaf) and see how many of the missing words you are able to fill in. Next, highlight any words in the account that you do not know. Afterwards, discuss these words together and produce a list of definitions. Now watch the TEDEd video a second time to complete as many gaps in the account as you can. TIP: You might want to watch it once without filling the gaps so you can focus on the visuals, then a second time to focus on filling the gaps”. There is also a completed teacher copy of this worksheet available.
