Kingston Frontenac Public Library Jo Stanbridge, Librarian Local History and Genealogy 29 October 2014 Sir John A Macdonald "Shout-Out Game" for Students How it Works 1. Print out four copies of this document. Keep one copy for yourself. 2. From the remaining three copies, cut out the pictures and source citations. Discard the narrative. 3. Fold each of the picture-strips in half. 4. Put them all into a top hat. 5. Each student pulls a picture out of the hat and writes his/her name on the back. 6. There are multiple copies of each picture, so more than one student will have the same picture. 7. Show the slides on the screen (Powerpoint presentation.) 8. Each section of Sir John A's life is introduced by a "secret word." 9. Read out the facts about his life and show the picture(s) that illustrate each fact. 10. If the student has a picture that matches the one on the screen, s/he calls out the "secret word." The first student to call it out is allowed to put his/her ticket back into the hat. 11. At the end of the game, draw a name out of the hat. The raffle winner gets a prize. 1843 Sir John A Macdonald's First Wife In 1843 married his first cousin, Isabella Clark Macdonald (1811-1857).
