We watched some videos of singers denouncing apartheid and asking to free Mandela through their actions and songs. We tried to match the dates to the events and finally we read Mandela's life to see if our answers were correct.
We read some of his quotations and his speaches and wrote them on a piece of paper to form a collage on a poster. We started debating about the different themes and the meaning of freedom.
