 In 1605, a group of Catholic conspirators plotted to assassinate King James I of England (and VI of Scotland) by blowing up the House of Lords during the opening of parliament.

They hid kegs full of gunpowder in the cellars beneath the chamber where the king and the rest of the political elite would assemble. Enough powder was stored to completely destroy the building and kill everyone present.

One of the conspirators, Guy Fawkes, was tasked with igniting this huge bomb. It is Fawkes' effigy that is still burned on 5 November bonfires to this day.

Task for homework:

1.- Click on the picture.

2.- Play the game.
3.- Copy the right answers.

4.- Write the story in your notebook in chronological order.

5.- Vote in the poll: Did you enjoy the game?

6.- As usual, leave a comment on the blog.

I hope you have fun!

  10. Hi teacher, how it´s going? :D
    I´m here now with Kiko writing the comments, because we forgot to do it at home. The game wasn´t funny or interesting, because Guy Fawkes didn´t blow up the House of Lords, and the "Game Over" was the funniest thing in the game. I´m sure that you would have to aprove this comment in class, because it left only one hour for our English class :D
    Well, that´s all, cya l8r teacher : )

    I've finished the sentences, don't worry.

    It is interesting, because we learn about the culture of the UK, and it is good for us because if someone ask us and we know, we can answer them, without any problems.
    See you tomorrow!
