School Subjects in German - A Complete Guide.

This resource introduces 15 school subjects with many practice activities. It introduces questions and answers about likes and dislikes as well as opinions/ reasons. It goes on to introduce talking about favourite subjects. There are pair work speaking activities, reading activities and writing activities. The reading activities include texts with richtig/falsch exercises as well as activities with open-ended questions. There is a school timetable that pupils could replicate and questions to answer about the timetable they see. Answers for all activities appear on the PowerPoint. By the end of the PowerPoint (68 slides) pupils will be able to write a paragraph about their school subjects (likes/dislikes, opinions and so on), either by using a given German template or by only English prompts. There is a lengthy worksheet, which accompanies the activities on the PowerPoint and a separate word search document.

German - Transcription pairwork template

German - Transcription pairwork template

Use this template to practise transcription work in pairs. There is a sheet for person A and one for person B. Type the 2 different texts into the relevant boxes (they must be 2 different texts). Pupils then take it in turns to read their text to their partner, who must then write what they hear in the empty box. After they have both finished, they then compare their written text to the original on their partner's sheet and tally any errors made.

Trapdoor template

This activity can be done in pairs or as a class. As a class, one pupil leaves the room while everyone else decides what the correct sequence should be. The pupil re-enters the room and tries to guess the sequence. If incorrect, they have to start again. It's better as a pairwork activity. One pupil decides which options they want to use in the complete paragraph. The other reads through the paragraph, guessing the options as they go. If incorrect, they must start again. Cue lots of laughter!

Pupils must then form a triangle with the cards by matching the TL to the English. Instructions are in the notes section of the PPT. It's worth Googling 'Tarsia puzzles'!
