Att lyssna och förstå. Frågorna täcker hela elevernas livstid (en fråga/år) och eleverna tycker att det är roligt att minnas tillbaka. Det blir ofta en trevlig stund tillsammans!
En aktivitet som passar i början/slutet av terminen eller mellan två längre arbetsområden. Eleverna brukar uppskatta detta mycket!
Jag brukar spela lite av låten som ett intro, sedan sänka volymen och läsa frågan, och därefter höja volymen igen och spela en bit till medan de slår sina kloka huvuden ihop (de gör alltid detta i par/grupp) och skriver ner svaret.
