Regents are kings or queens who rule a country. First write a draft, by hand. When you are done, rewrite and make a booklet about your regent, the booklet we will hang up in the classroom.

1. Decide on a regent. Search the Internet or reference books for information, and then decide which king or queen you want to work with. You may like some special time, e.g. 17th century, then you can choose a regent from that time. After some regents it says (head of state) it means that they were people who had power when there was no king or queen.

2. Once you have decided which king or queen you want to work with, find out the facts about him or her. Use the Internet or reference books.

3. When you have found out all the facts, write them down with your nicest handwriting in a booklet. In the booklet you can paste pictures that you have printed from the Internet, copied or drawn yourself. On the outside of the booklet there should be a picture of the regent, as well as the years when he / she was regent.

4. You will hold a small lesson about your regent for your class, parents or a friend.

Find out:

  • What did the country look like during this time?
  • How big was the kingdom?
  • What religion did the inhabitants have?
  • Was it war or peace in the country?
  • Was it famine?
  • What diseases were there?
  • Who was the regent?
  • When was the regent born?
  • How many years ago was it?
  • For how many years was he / she regent?
  • How did he / she become regent (was he / she born or was he / she elected)?
  • Who were his / her parents?
  • Did he / she get married?
  • Did he / she have children?
  • How was the regent as king / queen?
  • Did the people like the regent?
  • Why / why not?
  • Did the regent do anything special when he / she ruled over his / her kingdom (eg started a war or made peace, made laws or changed society)?
  • How did the reign end (was he / she king or queen until death, or did something else happen that made him / her end as regent)?

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a contagious disease first identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. The disease has since spread worldwide, leading to an ongoing pandemic. The virus that causes COVID-19 spreads mainly when an infected person is in close contact with another person. Small droplets and aerosols containing the virus can spread from an infected person's nose and mouth as they breathe, cough, sneeze, sing, or speak.

Most common symptoms: fever, dry cough, tiredness

Less common symptoms: aches and pains, sore throat, diarrhea, conjunctivitis, headache, loss of taste or smell, a rash on the skin, or discoloration of fingers or toes.

In this assignment, you will learn more about what it was like to be young in the past. You should get help from your family and interview your parents, grandparents or any other elderly person in your vicinity. If you do not have any older relatives in your area, you may be able to visit a language café and find someone to interview. What do they remember from their childhood?

Feel free to create your own questions. If you find it difficult to create your own questions, you cantake the help of the following:

• What year were you born?
• Where did you live as a child?
• How many years did you go to school?
• What did a school day look like?
• What did you do in your spare time?
• What toys did you like to play with?
• What did you read as a child? Do you remember any particular title or author?
• What was your favourite dish?

When you interview, it is good to either write down short notes or recording the interviews. Get help with audio recording on your phone or computer. Do you have difficulty to meet your grandparents or someone else older in your area you can do the interviews as a telephone call or video call. In these programs you can record your calls. After the conversations, it is good to rewrite the notes. You should then use your notes to either create an oral presentation or write a personal portrait.
