Mirror Vocab - Health

Mirror Vocab - Health

A vocab learning activity using health vocab based on a popular technique called mirroring. Students read 3 items at a time to their partner with definitions and repeat twice. Mixing up the order of words is effective. The partner repeats back parrot-fashion. After 8 mins or so, swap roles. Do a vocab test at the end and see the results!

Illness in German

Illness in German

Powerpoint introduing illnesses in German using lots of Simpsons visuals. The powerpoint begins by introducing phrases in German to do with illness and injury (My leg hurts, I've got a cold etc). There are then several slides of match up activities and games (eg visuals there for 'beat the teacher' or 'be the teacher', 'what's missing game'). All the sentences also written on a slide so that pupils can copy or stick into books. Whole lesson of activities. Visuals could also be used as a basis for speaking work with a partner.

Der Körper und die Gesundheit

Der Körper und die Gesundheit

This is a revision resource aimed to revise body parts, illnesses and visiting the doctor. It was created with Logo 2, chapter 3 in mind, but can easily be used with other text books, or none, as no references are made to the book.The sheet can be used as a standard revision sheet. However, it was originally designed as a competition. For each section that students complete, they should come to the teacher's desk, where the activity is marked. For each successfully completed section, the teacher awards the student with a raffle ticket. This goes into a prize draw at the end of lesson - the more tickets a student has, the higher chance they have of winning. A highly motivating and engaging task to brighten up what could be quite dry revision.

At the doctor's

At the doctor's

Power point to go through some illness phrases, and how long you have been ill for. The idea is for pupils to create and act out a role-play. I must just add that the sound effect slides have been taken from the KLAR website and have not been made by me! Had to add this due to the praise comments and I had forgotten to ackhowledge the fantastic KLAR website when I shared my resource..
