German Foods/ Supermarket game

German Foods/ Supermarket game

German 'shopping' game for learning foods and some instructions Included: -Images of food -Shopping trolley -German vocab list -Key words -Instructions -Children are paired up for the game. Each pair has a set of the food images, an image of the 'trolley', a vocabulary sheet and the word cards. Each pair is also given a whiteboard and pen. -The food pictures are placed facing upwards on the table. The vocabulary sheet and the word cards are turned over on the table so that they can't be seen. -The children label themselves A and B. Person A is the ‘customer’ and person B is the ‘shop assistant’. -Person A will write 'shopping list' at the top of their whiteboard, and numbers one to four down the side of the board. Person A randomly selects four of the word cards that are placed upside down on the table. They then write out the four words onto the whiteboard to make up the shopping list, and read them out loud for Person B, using the phrase, "Ich möchte..." (I need…) to begin the sentence. -It is then person B's responsibility to find the corresponding pictures that match the German words and place them in the trolley. Afterwards, person B says, “Ich habe…” (I have…) and then lists the food items they have in German to finish the sentence. -If either of the children struggle to understand what some of the vocabulary means, then they can turn over the vocab sheet to help them. -At the end of each person's turn, the children can also use the vocab sheet as a guide to check that the images in the trolley correctly match the word cards on the list. Afterwards, these images and cards are placed to one side, and it is the next person's turn. The activity continues until all of the images and word cards have been used up.

German Cartoon Character 'Speed Dating' Speaking and Listening Activity (personal information)

German Cartoon Character 'Speed Dating' Speaking and Listening Activity (personal information)

These are cards which can be cut up and laminated to use for a speed dating style speaking and listening activity. Each student is given a card and takes on the role of that character. Students work in pairs and have two or three minutes together before moving on to pair up with another student. Students ask each other questions to find out the information on their partner's card (Wie heisst du? Wie alt bit du? Wann hast du Geburtstag? Wo wohnst du?). Once both students have asked and answered questions they can share their cards to check that the listener heard / noted the correct information. Students have really enjoyed doing this activity and it is a great way to improve confidence in speaking and listening. The cards can also then be distributed around the class for students to write out a 'character profile'.
