    Loved, love this topic. Created lots of talking points and my students all had something to contribute during our “conversational” lesson. The on-line version was equally as great and FAB as the printable version.
    Many thanks. I know it was an older lesson but thoroughly enjoyable.
    WELL DONE for putting this together and most appreciated with only a couple of hours to spare before my lesson. No adaption needed. BRILLIANT.
