Default Re: Games to teach the dates and ordinal numbers

Another idea, useful for recycling dates with older teenagers or adults, is to ask them to match dates and famous events - the sinking of the Titanic, the assassination of John Lennon, the first moon walk and so on. The SS have a list of the events (in random order), and the teacher reads out the dates (again in random order). SS write the date against the event they think it corresponds to. Check by eliciting their ideas (S : I think Lennon was assassinated on .... ). Note that this activity presumes a knowledge of the past simple active and passive, so it's not usually suitable for an initial introduction.
