German Advent Calendar quiz

German Advent Calendar quiz

I crafted a powerpoint advent calendar. Clicking on each of the doors takes you to a revision question or general christmas question. After answering you return to the calendar page by clicking on the house button on the question slide. Currently filled in for a Y9 German (1st year of learning it), but easily modified for other subjects or languages. The background picture is also separate from the calendar doors, so easily swapped out for one of your liking. Merry Christmas ps - first version didn’t seem to work once uploaded. Apologies. Saved this as .ppt now, hopefully this version will work as intended.
