(German Language) Nibelungenlied - Shorted Story and Resources

(German Language) Nibelungenlied - Shorted Story and Resources

This is a shortened form of the famous legend of the Nibelungs of Germany. The story is shortened into 5 sections for students to read and have a vocabulary presentation for each section. I’ve also made a background knowledge reading and research piece to help students understand more of the historical background of the piece. I’ve also included a video project guide and final test. Would take about 25 minutes a day for about 7 days or you could chunk it into a longer period of time. I like to break it up. Also…there is a movie you can buy that is pretty good and fun to watch afterwards! The story is fun and historically interesting. Viel Spass!

(German Culture) BUNDLE- German Air Pollution Articles and Guides (5 Articles)

(German Culture) BUNDLE- German Air Pollution Articles and Guides (5 Articles)

This is a set of 5 articles written in English about Germany and it’s impending air pollution situation I use this resource as a class background knowledge builder before starting our chapter on the environment. I have the whole class read the main article regarding air pollution in Germany. The guide for this article is 2 pages and has students answer questions regarding the written text. They need to go online to visit the article so they can view the audio/visual supplemental items listed within the online article. The 4 additional articles are listed within the main article for additional topic support. I divide my class up into groups and have each group read a supporting article and do the 1 page guide. Then we share out our findings together. The entire project would last about 60 minutes. These articles are suited for high school level students. FILES IN WORD FORMAT. The articles are hyperlinked within the titles for quick access and also included as PDF for easy printing.

(German Language) Simple Separable Verbs Practice #2 - Game / Presentation

(German Language) Simple Separable Verbs Practice #2 - Game / Presentation

CONSIDER LEAVING FEEDBACK AND FOLLOWING ME. DANKE ;) Simple Separable Verbs Practice #1 - Game / Presentation This is a simple resource that I use when my students who are just starting to learn how to use separable prefix verbs in German 2. It is set up to be a white board team game. You don't have to play it as a game, but it is more fun that way. There are a total of 9 English statements or questions that have to be translated by teams for points. Present the statement to the whole class, then have them hold up their answers after a time specified by you. Give points to teams who did well. The final statement is tough and has teams secretly wager points (they turn in their wagers to you on a piece of paper before seeing the final question). Then they turn their final answers into the teacher on sheets of paper. Finally, you unveil the final results!!! So Spanend!!! LOL.. It's a Power Point so you can change things or add more questions.
