German Grand Prix Game Starter Plenary Revision

German Grand Prix Game Starter Plenary Revision

To celebrate the German F1 Grand Prix at the Hockenheimring I have created this interactive game for my German students. Enter your own questions and multiple choice answers and watch as two teams battle it out to be the first car past the finishing line. Possible instructions on the first slide. ENABLE ALL MACROS AND REDUCE SECURITY ON YOUR PC FOR THIS TO WORK PROPERLY. I will split my class up into two teams and give everybody a mini whiteboard. Pupils will write the answer of the question on their mini whiteboard and hold it up after my count down. The team with the most correct answers will be the team who's car will move around the screen (just click on the car) Enjoy, and I look forward to your feedback :)

Customs and Festivals in German-Speaking countries Writing/ Speaking practice GCSE

Customs and Festivals in German-Speaking countries Writing/ Speaking practice GCSE

Writing and Speaking practice for the new GCSE (based on the AQA scheme of work). This particular resource is for German only.I use this at the end of a module for students to recap and add it to their file for future reference. It prepares them for writing assessments and the general conversation part of the speaking assessment.There are 8 questions for students to answer on the topic CUSTOMS AND FESTIVALS IN GERMAN SPEAKING COUNTRIES.I have also included a generic checklist for students to use, to make sure they are using tenses, opinions, justification etc. as well as a blank checklist for teachers/ students to add language specifics/ extra criteria for higher target grades. I am also selling similar placemats for other topics.

It blends visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learning strategies to embed the key sounds of German so that learners can apply this knowledge straightaway to new language they encounter. They develop autonomy and confidence quickly with this approach. Look out for the other lessons in this term's work. There are 33 PowerPoint lesson resources in this series that offer progression and generate high levels of motivation. Author: Leigh McClelland, AST, Comberton Village College
