Writing challenge: Environment/Exchanges + verb guide

Writing challenge: Environment/Exchanges + verb guide

I created this to surreptitiously get my year 9s to rehash a piece of writing they did in an exam. The task was to write a letter home about their German exchange experience - their German exchange partner is Detlev, whose family are incredibly environmentally friendly (no heating, no electricity(!)). This challenge allows all students to create an end-product by choosing one of the three on offer (article, interview, poster). On the back is a colour-coded guide to verb forms and word order (present tense, modal/future structure, and verb-comma-verb/subordination.

Die Umwelt & Obdachlos

Die Umwelt & Obdachlos

End of topic fun activity sheet based on Echo 3 Rot - one worksheet with a word-search, crossword, jumbled words and "how many can you find" picture. I tend to use it either as part of a carousel or during speaking assessment lessons.

Diskussionthema - Die Umwelt gegen den Betrieb

I created this resource for my KS4 classes to use to for group work preparation and then debate between the 2 different factions. I linked it useful phrases to express and justify meanings, to allow students opportunity to be creative when speaking.

Umwelt / Environment - Speaking Game

Umwelt / Environment - Speaking Game

This is a resource based on the card game Cheat, which I adapted to practise speaking about environmental issues. The game is very competitive and my classes have always enjoyed it. Rules included. I recommend printing onto card so that the students can't see through the paper...

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.
