Biographies of Famous People (Past Simple)

The worksheet includes four biographies of famous people (Thomas Edison, Ada Lovelace, Elvis Presley, Leonardo da Vinci) with gaps to fill in correct past simple forms. My suggestion is to divide ss into small groups or pairs and give each a different biography. Ss first choose correct past forms and then retell the biography skipping the name of a famous person for  other groups/pairs to guess who they are talking about.
