The activity is aimed to engage students into the history of Shrove Tuesday within a short amount of time using a ‘close’ exercise. The students will read through the paragraph and notice there are missing words. Underneath the paragraphs is a word bank which the students will use to fill in the blanks.
This engages students in not only the religion and history, but language used and potentially increase their vocabulary.
Students then are able to get creative (and let’s face it, who doesn’t love to draw?) by designing their very own pancakes! Yum!
