Some examples of historical buildings in Leipzig. This follows on from lessons on art history (styles, time periods etc).
Pupils can receive the pictures of the buildings and the time period/building style document, and then annotate the pictures with their knowledge (i.e. pointing out round arches, use of concrete etc).
You could then take them through the pictures so the pupils can jot down the name of the buildings. Afterwards we discussed the different styles, what they individually "say" to the pupil (links to expressing emotion & reaction), and then put together our own tour of Leipzig's architectural styles (using comparatives, superlatives and modal verbs).
The final task was to discuss the final quote (I need to find the author of the quote!) - pupils enjoyed linking in historical background with the actual buildings, although it may prove to be challenging for some.
