Who would be in your football 1ST XI? This simple question can get your students thinking! It can be applied in so many ways in different subjects. This activity will make the basis of an interesting class discussion, homework activity or plenary.
Who would be in your First World War football XI? Discussion could involve which weapons should be used in defence and which ones in attack. Who would hold the midfield is another question…
Another question could be which US Presidents would make up a football XI? Which presidents were attacking in nature, who were neutral but also who saved US from poverty or disaster – they could be in goal.
An extension to this activity could be – who would be captain? Who would you make the manager of your team?
