German Grand Prix Game Starter Plenary Revision

German Grand Prix Game Starter Plenary Revision

To celebrate the German F1 Grand Prix at the Hockenheimring I have created this interactive game for my German students. Enter your own questions and multiple choice answers and watch as two teams battle it out to be the first car past the finishing line. Possible instructions on the first slide. ENABLE ALL MACROS AND REDUCE SECURITY ON YOUR PC FOR THIS TO WORK PROPERLY. I will split my class up into two teams and give everybody a mini whiteboard. Pupils will write the answer of the question on their mini whiteboard and hold it up after my count down. The team with the most correct answers will be the team who's car will move around the screen (just click on the car) Enjoy, and I look forward to your feedback :)

Template for Picture Blockbusters

Template for Picture Blockbusters

Here is a Blockbusters template for PowerPoint, easily adaptable. The concept is simple. You fill the boxes with questions or anything else (in MFL, you can use english sentences to translate) and if the pupils answer correctly you click on the box and it disappears. I used for this template images from around the world so the pupils can discover a new country every time.

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.

Zoo Project - German

Zoo Project - German

This is a workbook and set of resources about animals in a Zoo. It has cut and stick stuff, some flashcards and maps of zoos. It goes through basic descriptions to more advanced, and touches on issues of conservation, zoo planning and environment a little bit. I’ve included the rough set of lesson plans I did with it - apologies that they are in French, as I did the French version of this first and it’s basically the same thing!
