Simple cards featuring a variety of famous people (most of them no longer with us) to be used when practicing years, birthdays plus introduction of the past simple of [i]to be[/i]\. I created them with my adult beginner students in mind so they could ask and answer about ages and birthdays without having to give their own information (this activity ties in nicely with Unit 9 in the Headway Beginner book). I find that students of all ages enjoy taking on "new identities". This worksheet is fully editable so that you can adapt the famous people to suit the students you teach and the culture you teach in. Not to mention, adapt it for teens (e.g.: Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger, Tupac, Amy Winehouse, etc. ) Have fun!
