Treasure Hunt Plenary Game

(2)
A fun plenary or starter game for any subject or topic that doesn't need any preparation. On each slide there are 16 squares with five treasures hidden behind them. Students answer a question and if they get it right they choose a square and get a point/sweet/sticker if they find a treasure. There are 11 slides with treasures hidden in different places and the slide to be used can be chosen randomly by clicking the spinning wheel on the first slide. This activity is based on the gamification theory that random rewards make games more addictive and fun. Note: In presentation mode click on squares to make them disappear and reveal the treasures.

Stimmt GCSE Murder Mystery – Menschliche Beziehungen (Chapter 3)

(6)
Murder Mystery to run alongside Stimmt AQA GCSE Higher/Foundation Chapter 3 “Menschliche Beziehungen”, (some of the tasks would have to be adapted for Stimmt Edexcel.) Turn a whole chapter into a crime story! This project is intended to complement/ replace exercises from the text book and will link the pages together into one thrilling crime story. My students ask every lessons if they will find out ‘whodunit’, especially as there is a prize for the best detective! The project should not take up much more time than using the book on its own as some tasks can replace text book tasks and get students to revise the text book vocabulary in a different context. The topics included: describing appearance and character speaking about friendship family relationships and reasons why you (don’t) get on with each other weddings and opinions about marriage separable verbs future tense imperfect modal verbs Includes: • puzzle, reading, writing, listening, speaking, translation and role play tasks • film trailer for the project, powerpoint (more than 60 slides) and work booklet (12 pages) • teacher guidance (hidden in the ppt, can be seen in edit mode) • activity overview • answers to all tasks
Treasure Hunt - Places in Town and Directions

Treasure Hunt - Places in Town and Directions

(2)
A fun game that can be used to practise speaking about places in town and giving directions. Works best if there are prizes for finding the treasures! There are 5 maps with streets and town buildings (church, hospital ect) and three hidden treasure per slide. Students have to guess where the treasure is by naming the place of giving directions there, when you click on the place it reveals either an empty space or a treasure. The third slide turns the whole game into a race between different teams. In stronger classes they could practise prepositions and cases/genders (in der Kirche/ au stade ect) The last two slides are more detailed to practise more complex directions like ‘over the bridge’, ‘at the traffic light’ ect.

Let history come to life with an escape room lesson! Try out a sample here: https://view.genial.ly/5ef4a659be972e0d68958fbe New version: no preparation, self marking, remote learning ready. Get students to puzzle their way through the history of the Berlin Wall, trying to stay in touch with their long lost friend Thomas on the other side of the wall. Engage students with a story website that will require them to work through a mix of text, video, jigsaw puzzles and codes to be the first one to win. This resource can be used as a revision lesson on the topic of the Berlin Wall or, with some internet research by the students, as a first introduction to the topic. It should take between 45 min and 2 hours, depending on age and prior knowledge. The new digital version is longer. As a native of Berlin I have been teaching this topic as part of my German lessons for about 10 years now. On the 3rd October, German national day, all my classes (aged 13-18) get a one lesson run through of the history of the wall and students are always fascinated by it. The topics covered here are: • the situation of Germany under the occupation of the allies after the war • the differences between East and West • why people escaped to the West • the building of the wall • what is the Stasi • what led to the fall of the wall • what happened on the 9th of November 1989 Includes: • link to dedicated story website (2 versions) • documents, excel and powerpoint files • puzzles • lesson plan • answers I have also included a powerpoint presentation of statistics showing the present-day differences between former East and West Germany and a collection of my favourite youtube videos on the topic.

German pronunciation with sound - Deutsche Aussprache

Practise German pronunciation with this 70-slide PowerPoint. It is suitable for all levels from beginners to A-Level, and can be used whenever the students struggle with a certain sound. This version includes all the word lists read out by a native speaker. There is a presentation-only version available to buy. It covers the main difficult letters/letter combinations like ‘ie’ and ‘ei’, ‘sp’ and ‘st’ and ‘J’. The sounds are practiced with the following activities: listen and repeat contrasting pairs (for students to work out the pronunciation), listen and point to what sound you hear, pair work, tongue twisters and a rule to copy down if possible. The presentation is meant to be presented in chunks, when students come across a new sound or before speaking exams. Note: the slides are not in alphabetical order but in order of how common the problem is. There is a hyperlinked index.
