Background notes
Bowling (Tenpin Bowling) has been a popular indoor game for a very long time. We know that it was
played in Egypt as early as 5200 BC. The rules for the modern game were
standardised in the USA in 1895. You try to knock all the pins down with two balls. If you succeed with
only one ball you score more points. Any number of people can play
the game. The 60s was a time when young people in the USA and Europe became particularly
rebellious and frequently went on demonstrations and political marches - at the end of the decade there
were riots in Paris. Rock music became very popular and provided a focus for rebellion and also a way
of experimenting with new ideas. It was based on the Blues music of black American musicians.
Particularly popular rock bands included the
Who, the Byrds, the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix as well as the Beatles. Solo artists, such as Janis
Joplin and Otis Redding, were also popular. Young people tried to make their clothes as outrageous as

pins. too. pausing for Ss to practice the phrases.Useful phrases (ex 3 page 65) With books closed. T asks Ss: Who are the people in the picture? Where are they? What are they doing?
