Ask each student in the class to draw up a list of 3 famous people (alive or dead) who they would like to keep them company on a desert island. They must give their reasons for their choices. You can vary the idea slightly by using the ‘Come Dine With Me’ concept instead. Students have to pick 3 famous people who they would like to entertain at a dinner party, again giving their reasons for their choices.

Ask your students to imagine that they are stranded on a desert island with only their MP3 player for company. The catch is that the MP3 player has had all of its songs erased apart from 10. Your students must note down which 10 songs they would like to remain, and why. Go around the class asking students to explain their choices and encourage other class members to comment on their choices. Do they agree/disagree and why? If you feel that 10 songs is too many reduce the number appropriately.
