World Book Day in German for Years 9 - 11

World Book Day in German for Years 9 - 11

I designed this resource for an able Year 9 group, but you could use it for GCSE groups too. You could start by reading out the book descriptions on page 3, and pupils guess the book you are describing. Then pupils have to match up the images of the book covers, authors and main characters. Then they use the sheet to compose their own book review. It’s differentiated, so all can manage phrases from the yellow box, and some will also manage ones from the green. You might want to give out the text of the book descriptions you started with, you may prefer not to. A nice plenary with an able group is to get them reading out their book reviews, and pupils guess which book they are describing. Hope it’s useful!

(German Language) Was ist Fasching? Karneval, Fastnacht, Carnival Germany

(German Language) Was ist Fasching? Karneval, Fastnacht, Carnival Germany

I use this article in my level 4 class to start talking about what Fasching (Carnival) or Karneval is in Germany. The article is written for native German elementary school kids, yet the language level is best suited toward more advanced language students. You could use it in level 3, overall a A2 early B1 language level. This resource includes: - The 1 page article in PDF format - A target vocabulary Word Cloud - Before and after reading questions Questions are in power point so you can customize them. Takes about 45 minutes if teacher lead and discussed. Students work independently and turning the assignment in would take about 30 minutes. I'll be posting more Fasching resources soon. Please check my store. You can also check out my other German Resources: German Studies: Language, History and Culture ☀☀☀ PLEASE FOLLOW ME FOR NEW PRODUCT UPDATES ☀☀☀
