German: Weather, Countries and Holidays: revision activities and games

This are the activities from a lesson I taught on revising the names of countries, weather phrases and holidays. The powerpoint is a brief revision outline and includes a reminder about the correct use of prepositions as well as a class points game. Students generally love this game: divide the class into two or three teams and each team takes a turn in giving a weather phrase in German. They then clink on the symbol which disappears to reveal the points behind it. This can be differentiated (e.g. double the points if a whole sentence / including the name of a country / different tense is used). Also a match up activity to revise weather phrases - two sets of translations included as I had two students up at the board playing against each other - first to match correctly. The large names of the countries on the next document can be printed onto coloured card or laminated and then students come to the board and use bluetak to stick the name on to the correct country - display the blank outline map which is contained on the powerpoint. Alternatively print the blank map for students to label in German. There is also a word loop which can be used a number of ways. One way is simply to print and cut out for each student / pair / group to put together (like dominoes, cut along each row so each domino has a German and English phrase which don't match). Students will then end up with a circle of 'dominoes' with each German phrase next to the correct English translation. Can also be used as a word loop - give each student a domino and they read out the German. The student who has the English translation has to then read out the English. They then read their German phrase and it continues until back to the beginning. Great for listening and attention skills!

Weather forecast activity in French or German

Weather forecast activity in French or German

Visuals I used for weather forecast activity in French or German. I cut out and laminated the weather visuals and diaplayed the maps on the screen. Pupils stuck the symbols to the screnn with bluetack and gave their weather forecast in the foreign language. We watched some examples of weather forecasts in English and the foreign language first.

Coursework preparation holiday plans

Two pages slowly building up to write a paragraph about your holiday plans. Works well for grades E-B. Top set kids will have to add a bit more inversions & opinions. Tried and tested :)
