HOWEVER, OLD PEOPLE ARE WORTH A FORTUNE…..
Old people are rich :

gold in their teeth,

lead in their feet,

sugar in their blood,
and gas in their stomach.

WHY don´t we begin by playing a Kahoot to revise some of the content studied in the previous course?
WHAT IS KAHOOT?
Kahoot! is a free game-based learning platform that makes it fun to learn – any subject, in any language, on any device, for all ages!
HOW DO YOU PLAY?
Kahoots are best played in a group setting, like a classroom. Players answer the questions on their own devices (individually or in teams), while games are displayed on a shared screen (the teacher´s) to unite the lesson. It creates a ‘campfire moment’ encouraging players to look up and celebrate together. Besides creating your own kahoots, you can search among millions of existing games.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO?
- Take your mobile phone or tablet and JOIN at kahoot.it DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE APP
- Enter the GAME PIN (it changes every time you play the game)
- Type in your NICKNAME, and then OK, GO!
- The teacher will START the game and you´ll see your name on the board
- Questions will be displayed on his/her board (with a time limit)
- CLICK on the right answer by clicking on the right colour on your mobile
