Empower Playground Inc. Proves That Generating Electricity Is 'Child's Play' - No, Really The fact that kids seem to have an inordinate amount of energy is indisputable. What if this energy could somehow be harnessed and turned into electricity? That was a question that Ben Markham, a retired Vice President of Engineering at ExxonMobil asked himself a few years ago. The result? It all began in 2004 when Ben retired from his corporate job and decided it was time to give back to the world. Given the country's location just north of the equator the days and nights in Ghana are divided almost equally throughout the year - which means 12 hours of nights so dark, that the country ranks as Class 1 on the Bortle scale. The retired engineer's mind immediately started to think about how he could capture the kinetic energy that the kids spent running around and turn it into electricity. The first piece of equipment they devised was one that can be used by multiple kids at that same time - A Merry-Go-Round. Resources:, Critical Thinking Challenge:

Seven Songs for Teaching Past Simple | English Lane I have created a list of songs, which are perfect for teaching Past Simple tense in English. All of the songs are relatively new and popular, so they would especially be suitable for teaching teenagers. While the primary goal would be teaching Past Simple, you can always add a few more exercises in order to work on vocabulary or grammar. Coldplay – Paradise Past Simple is often used for retelling the events that happened in the past. Passenger – The Wrong Direction Seeing “When I was a kid…” at the beginning of the song lyrics, you know there has to be some Past Simple in there. Katy Perry – The One That Got Away Apart from teaching Past Simple, with verbs met, got, planned, had, made, said, etc. you can also teach would for talking about future from a time in the past (I would make you stay, I would be your girl). Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know Your students will definitely know this song, having in mind how popular it was for a while. Like this: Like Loading...

Appendix:Collocations of do, have, make, and take This appendix lists collocations of the verbs make, do, take, and have. In many of these usages the verbs are "light verbs" that lend relatively little semantic content. Other light verbs include: give, pay, put, raise, offer. For people who are learning English, or even who speak it moderately well, these four verbs present difficulties when it comes to many collocations. For example, what about the shopping? This is not a definitive list. Readers of this appendix are strongly recommended to read the main entry for the noun or expression to check for correct usage and meaning. Contributors are encouraged to place Usage notes into this appendix similarly, and also into the collocate's main entry, such as: We normally do the shopping.We normally make or take a (tele)phone call. ...and so on, along with the Appendix: link to this page.
