Umwelt / Environment - Speaking Game

Umwelt / Environment - Speaking Game

This is a resource based on the card game Cheat, which I adapted to practise speaking about environmental issues. The game is very competitive and my classes have always enjoyed it. Rules included. I recommend printing onto card so that the students can't see through the paper...

KS3/4 German: Environment/Umwelt in 3 tenses (Present, Future, Perfect)

KS3/4 German: Environment/Umwelt in 3 tenses (Present, Future, Perfect)

A couple of help sheets and activities on the topic of the environment which revise the use of three different tenses. Based on Echo 3 Rot K4E4 Umweltschutz (pp.66-67). Included are: - helpsheet of sentence builders on present tense (ich-form); - helpsheet of sentence builders in three tenses, plus hints on how to use and extend them (NB the same verbs are used in all three tenses) (all in wir-form); - set of sentences to translate into German (differentiation is in the 'level' on which students attempt the task - details on sheet. I devised this for my year 9 beginners' class. They found it tricky - I think the challenge would be there for learners who have more years of German behind them.

Developing speaking in German: Shrink me, grow me!

Developing speaking in German: Shrink me, grow me!

A way of modeling and encouraging extended answers. Model a lengthy sentence, and students must take turns to remove one element but leave the sentence 'intact' (i.e. still sensical) until they get down to the most basic structure. Then it's their turn to build up again from a basic structure, element by element. Some students will want to race ahead and put in 5 things at once - this is ok if they can do it correctly; if not, encourage them to go step by step. The example here is on the topic of environment/Umwelt.
