I love teaching about the English language, especially word etymology. I try to start English 1 with a 2-week mini-unit on the English Language. I figure that if I expect students to relatively master English, they should know its history.
This is the project I give with that unit. Each student is assigned 4 words to find the etymology for. For each of those words, students will visually plot the history of that word twice: once geographically on a map of Europe and once chronologically on a timeline of important dates in the history of England/English.
