GERMAN - EUROPE POSTER & QUIZ PACK - AUF DEUTSCH!

GERMAN - EUROPE POSTER & QUIZ PACK - AUF DEUTSCH!

CREATE AN INSTANT AND COMPREHENSIVE INTRODUCTION TO EUROPE IN YOUR CLASSROOM, DEVELOP GEOGRAPHICAL KNOWLEDGE OF EUROPE AND ENHANCE SKILLS IN GERMAN AT THE SAME TIME!72 POSTERS WITH EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, CAPITAL CITIES & FLAGS4 QUIZZES, 4 CHALLENGES - 120 MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUIZ CARDS, COUNTRIES & CAPITAL CITIES WITH RECALL & WRITE QUIZZESThe posters give your learning environment a great multicultural look and feel, at the same time promoting GERMAN as a living language, featuring in the everyday life of your - and your students’ - classroom. There may be a number of countries and capital cities that students do not know, or are not aware of, so the posters can help students develop their general knowledge and understanding of EUROPEAN GEOGRAPHY. I’ve included a range of islands, such as the FAROE ISLANDS, to extend students’ knowledge of EUROPE a little further, and I’ve also shown some countries, for example ARMENIA, that are often classed as belonging either to EUROPE or to ASIA. I’ve also included two posters for some countries, such as GERMANY, officially known as BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND - you can choose either the more frequently-used ‘DEUTSCHLAND’ or the ’BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND’ to display.With the quizzes, students can further develop their knowledge of the geography of Europe in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, using GERMAN as the means of communication. The quizzes are great for listening, speaking, pronunciation and reading out loud, working well as both a small and whole-group team activity. There are four speaking/writing challenges: CHALLENGE 1 prompts for a specific capital city; CHALLENGE 2 prompts for a specific country; CHALLENGE 3 prompts for a capital city in writing; CHALLENGE 4 prompts for a country in writing. The quiz card templates allow students to put their memory to the test in a different way, and to apply their knowledge very practically, as well as engaging with some basic writing in GERMAN: they can create their own set of multiple-choice questions for each other! There is also an alphabetical by country reference list of all countries and capitals, which students find useful to read through before playing. Laminate the cards and reference sheets if you can - you’ll be able to use them for years to come! The posters and quizzes are also available as separate resources, each priced at £4.00.The resource itself comprises 3 non-editable files in a zipped format; please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-classroom use only.VIELEN DANK UND VIEL SPAß!

They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. The prompt cards feature language and structures that your students are likely to meet in the earlier stages of their GERMAN learning - I've classed the resource as suitable for ages 11-14, but it really does depend on the age at which your students began their GERMAN learning, and the stage they're currently working at.The reference booklet includes all the questions and answers written out in full.

Die Olympischen Spiele 2016 Rio

Powerpoint which presents key vocabulary to do with sports at the Olympics, as well as pushing students to write complex, then very complex, sentences about why they might want to (not) see certain events or visit the games.Should cover a whole lesson, depending on your lesson length and what else you do, of course, hence I´ve put it as a whole lesson, rather than a presentation.Note - this is adapted (only slightly!) from the version already on here that I made for the London 2012 Olympics, so you might recognise a lot of it!

Introductory powerpoint for project on Berlin

Introductory powerpoint for project on Berlin

Project on Berlin with my year 9’s who were not continuing with German last year. When the project got under way we ended up focusing mostly on the Berlin Wall. (2nd PPT has pictures to illustrate the wall going up). The pupils wrote a diary entry on what it would have felt like to be in Berlin when the wall went up, then did a newspaper report on the wall coming down. They then did a tourist info leaflet. They produced some great work, and I managed to get hold of a genuine piece of the Berlin wall to give as a prize for the best project at the end!
