On August 25, 2012 Neil Armstrong passed away following complications from heart surgery. While in mourning, many people including Barack Obama referred to the retired astronaut as an American hero. His family, on the other hand, reminded us that Armstrong was a modest man. They invited people to simply wink at the moon in his memory.
The ESL Library team came together this week to develop a NEW lesson about Neil Armstrong’s life and career. This week’s podcast offers an audio preview of this new addition to our Famous People lesson plan section. In the related lesson plan, students complete vocabulary review exercises and comprehension questions. They also discuss Armstrong’s famous “giant leap” quote, and its legendary grammatical mistake. Students also discuss what constitutes a “hero.”
