A crazy birthday party, trips to Hamburg and Berlin and a shopping experience with William and Kate are in the focus of five activities for perfect tense consolidation and creative writing. The handout can be used as a review aid, for classroom activities or as homework. Please feed back. Thanks.
This is a classroom game to practise / revise the perfect tense and word order. Different shapes represent different elements in a sentence. This is particularly helpful for visual learners, but also a lot of fun for everyone else. Students have to work in groups and cut out all the shapes (see PP) first before they start to make sentences. Depending on the level of your students, you can practise the perfect tense with just 'haben' or with both 'haben' and 'sein'. More able students can practise the perfect tense as well as Time, Manner, Place and conjunctions (und, aber, denn, weil). Students can use the prepared 'shapes' and / or make their own (see extra slides). Students love it if you add an element of competition and maybe a prize for the group with the longest / most accurate / funniest sentence(s). Instructions are part of the PowerPoint. Feel free to adjust the slides according to your needs. Viel Spaß!
