Olympics / Die Olympischen Spielen Activities on Grammar and Vocab

Olympics / Die Olympischen Spielen Activities on Grammar and Vocab

A set of resources originally made for the London 2012 Olympics but now with an updated powerpoint for the Rio 2016 Olympics. The powerpoints contain presentations of many of the key sports, along with more complex slides in the latter half which provide instruction and tasks on the conditional and giving reasons (i.e. using da/obwohl/weil). The ´short version´ powerpoint contains the key sports but instead of a complex set of instructions about the conditional and connectives, is limited to using ´denn´ instead of more difficult connectives. The ´short version´ is also included as a PDF for ease alternative use/printing.

Die Olympischen Spiele 2016 Rio

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!
