Essen / Food - Vocab list trainer

A vocabulary list of food items (mostly cognates) originally designed for a SEND German class. Students can fold over the words to do look, cover, write, say, check activities.

Based on the game show where the aim is to complete a line of connecting hexagonal shapes either from side to side or from top to bottom. To gain control of a shape, students have to name the picture to gain control of the shape. This could be extended by naming the colour of the item and even further by say if you like, love, don't like or hate the fruit/vegetable in question. You could even say how often you eat the particular fruit or vegetable. The opportunities are endless. Have fun. My students did! If you consider this worth buying, 'un très grand merci.My thanks to: cliparts.com, openclipart.org and clipartbest.com for the use of the clipart images.
