Podcast: Tim Horton
A Famous Hockey Player and Entrepreneur
Do your students like watching or playing hockey? Do they enjoy drinking coffee and eating doughnuts? Today’s podcast features a reading from our NEW Famous People lesson plan about Tim Horton. In the related lesson plan, students read a brief bio about Canadian hockey legend Tim Horton. In addition to comprehension questions and a vocabulary review, they learn some spelling variations and role-play a celebrity sighting. To see the full transcript and use the ready-made lesson plan in class, log in to ESL-Library and choose our Famous People section. We also have a Famous Things lesson plan on Hockey. Here is a full list of our sports-themed materials and flashcards.
