School Subjects in German - A Complete Guide.

School Subjects in German - A Complete Guide.

This resource introduces 15 school subjects with many practice activities. It introduces questions and answers about likes and dislikes as well as opinions/ reasons. It goes on to introduce talking about favourite subjects. There are pair work speaking activities, reading activities and writing activities. The reading activities include texts with richtig/falsch exercises as well as activities with open-ended questions. There is a school timetable that pupils could replicate and questions to answer about the timetable they see. Answers for all activities appear on the PowerPoint. By the end of the PowerPoint (68 slides) pupils will be able to write a paragraph about their school subjects (likes/dislikes, opinions and so on), either by using a given German template or by only English prompts. There is a lengthy worksheet, which accompanies the activities on the PowerPoint and a separate word search document.

German - School worksheet

German - School worksheet

Ideal cover lesson. Pupils fill in the timetable in German to begin with. They then draw and label their school uniform in German, using the vocab list to help. They write some opinion words underneath their drawing. To finish, they must write a sentence or two about subjects and their uniform. For example, "Ich finde Deutsch toll und ich finde Mathe langweilig. Ich finde meine Schuluniform cool und schick."

Lieblingsfächer und Meinungen

Lieblingsfächer und Meinungen

A resource used alongside Echo Express 1 to teach Chapter 2 (School). I used this with year 7, but it could equally be used with year 8 if they had just started German.

24  German Language Sudoku Activities

24 German Language Sudoku Activities

These sudokus consist of 6, rather than 9, words or sentences, covering a variety of topics. If you want to try one for free, I have also uploaded the weather sudoku to give you an idea. Each worksheet also has an additional question or activity as extension for those who finish early or for those who do not like sudokus. The worksheets are particularly useful for KS3 but can also be used for a quick fun revision in KS4 or maybe even for KS2. Topics covered: Characteristics Clothes Colours Countries Days of the Week Directions Food Hobbies Illness Lost Property Members of the Family Months of the Year Nationalities Opinion Words Parts of the Body Pets Prepositions Questions Rooms in the House School Subjects Shops Transport TV Programmes Weather and, of course, the answer!

End of term puzzle Stimmt 1 unit 4 Schule ist Klasse

End of term puzzle Stimmt 1 unit 4 Schule ist Klasse

This is a tarsia puzzle to practise vocab from chapter 4 in Stimmt 1 (school). A tarsia consists of puzzle pieces that the students cut out and then match words to form a certain shape (ideally students don’t know what shape that is). They will quickly realise their mistakes if the puzzle won’t fit together. Great activity for Friday afternoons, cover lessons or end of term. This download includes: sheets for students with jumbled up puzzle pieces, an answer sheet for the teacher in list form and one showing the shape. If the print quality of the powerpoint is not good enough, use the attached pdf version.

Worksheet on Timetables and Opinions on School Subjects

Worksheet on Timetables and Opinions on School Subjects

Students need to extract information from a written text and a timetable in order to answer a set of true or false questions. There is also a translation activity as an extension (this is why there are lines under each statement). The worksheet would be a good scaffolding activity to support students with describing their own timetables.
