{January 2, 2014}   Birthday words

Which words originated the year you were born? My year-word is chill pill – a pill used, well… to calm or relax a person 🙂

I found this link very interesting to work with my students, to motivate them to learn new words, so why not sharing it here? It’s great to use as ice-breaker when you still don’t know your students (of course, it works better if you have an Internet connection  at school, and if you have multiple ages groups, but you can also work with important dates in history, or with family member’s birth years.
