Teenage Millionaire


This is an "information gap" activity for pairs of students. Student "A" should read the online news article Lottery Winner Looks to Future and complete the first blank column in the table below. Meanwhile, Student "B" should read Lottery winner Callie finds money can't buy you love or happiness and complete the second blank column in the table.

After completing their section of the table, each student should tell their partner what they have learnt about the lottery winner. (They should not show their table to their partner.)
