Why Lesson Planet?
How was your year? Create an individual timeline that document learners' personal history from the previous year. After reading an article about celebrating New Year's in Japan, pairs interview each other to gather information about their past experiences and New Year's expectations. They then use this information to create their timeline and a personal essay documenting their experiences from the previous year.
