Tâche intermédiaire

By a group of 4, you have to write a dialogue in which you're going to play a scene of a TV show about historical figures.
You can talk about the previous figures we said (James Cook, Horatio Nelson, Gandhi, Princess Diana) but you can also talk about famous historical figures you know.

Roles: 1 person plays the TV host and asks questions to the 3 others candidates.
Of course, it has to be realistic so the candidates can give wrong answers !

Ex : TV host : Who is the Princess who died in 1997 in a car accident ?
Candidate 1 : *buzzes* Queen Elizabeth II !
TV host : Unfortunately no ! This is a wrong answer Mrs Wilson.
Candidate 2 : *buzzes* I'm not sure but... Princess Diana ?
TV host : And this is an EXCELLENT answer from Mr Smith, One point is given to you !
The game ends when a candidate obtains a total of 5 points.
