KS3/4 German: Environment/Umwelt in 3 tenses (Present, Future, Perfect)

KS3/4 German: Environment/Umwelt in 3 tenses (Present, Future, Perfect)

A couple of help sheets and activities on the topic of the environment which revise the use of three different tenses. Based on Echo 3 Rot K4E4 Umweltschutz (pp.66-67).Included are:- helpsheet of sentence builders on present tense (ich-form);- helpsheet of sentence builders in three tenses, plus hints on how to use and extend them (NB the same verbs are used in all three tenses) (all in wir-form);- set of sentences to translate into German (differentiation is in the 'level' on which students attempt the task - details on sheet.I devised this for my year 9 beginners' class. They found it tricky - I think the challenge would be there for learners who have more years of German behind them.
