A PDF download and accompanying YouTube video about the origins of the nautical words 'port' and 'starboard'. Would link in nicely with class topics such as World Oceans Day, Anglo Saxons, English language, oceans, and explorers. Part of my oceans series as I prepare for my role as a real life explorer, about to row solo around the coast of Britain in summer 2017.

Views of my video are free, and they also raise funds to provide education to young people worldwide who have no formal access to education and are therefore trapped in a life of poverty and disadvantage.
If you speak any other languages, I would love for you and your students to translate this video so that it can be used by young people around the world who don't have English as a first language. You can supply your own translation via YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/timedtext_video?v=zk4XzKJ-7Z8&ref=share and I'll happily acknowledge yourself, class, or school as a language contributor.
I run free Skype in the Classroom sessions through Microsoft Education, so feel free to virtually invite me into your classroom through Skype, as part of your lessons.
