A historical role play (a persuasion task). Columbus wants to get funding for his voyage to India in 1492, so he pays a visit to the Spanish Queen, Isabella. In this game your students will act out what the explorer´s hearing at the Court might have looked like. There are helpful cues on the card to give the students ideas regarding how to do the meeting. Also included is a short historical background, the text of which you can simplify to suit lower level students, as well. Enjoy! :)

This downloadable teaching material is a great resource for high school at Intermediate (B1) and Upper-intermediate (B2) level.
