Stimmt GCSE Murder Mystery – Menschliche Beziehungen (Chapter 3)

Stimmt GCSE Murder Mystery – Menschliche Beziehungen (Chapter 3)

Murder Mystery to run alongside Stimmt AQA GCSE Higher/Foundation Chapter 3 “Menschliche Beziehungen”, (some of the tasks would have to be adapted for Stimmt Edexcel.) Turn a whole chapter into a crime story! This project is intended to complement/ replace exercises from the text book and will link the pages together into one thrilling crime story. My students ask every lessons if they will find out ‘whodunit’, especially as there is a prize for the best detective! The project should not take up much more time than using the book on its own as some tasks can replace text book tasks and get students to revise the text book vocabulary in a different context. Includes: • puzzle, reading, writing, listening, speaking, translation and role play tasks • film trailer for the project, powerpoint (more than 60 slides) and work booklet (12 pages) • teacher guidance (hidden in the ppt, can be seen in edit mode) • activity overview • answers to all tasks

German Escape Room for  A Level revision

German Escape Room for A Level revision

A lesson that your students will not forget quickly! A spy themed escape room activity in which students need to do German language related puzzles to get a code to jump from one website to the next in search of the “mole” . Ideal as vocab and grammar revision for year 12 or year 13 for AQA German AS/A Level (based on the Hodder text book). Will keep them focused even in the last lesson before the holidays! It includes vocab from the topics celebrations, digital world, architecture and Berlin. There is a “digital only” version and a" digital+paper" version. The “digital+paper” version is more fun because it involves the game website and real life puzzles ( jigsaws, code wheels and string activities) that make the activities more “real”, but requires quite a bit of preparation by the teacher. The “digital only” version only requires two print outs and a little bit of taping and can be done last minute. Comments from my 6th form students: “This is intense!” “This was the best lesson I’ve had in some time!” “Can we do another one soon?” The resource includes: Link to “Findet den Maulwurf!” website Teacher instruction, including how to put together the puzzle items and example pictures Teacher answers Powerpoint with game introduction Puzzles to print out/Files for digital versions

Berlin Wall Escape Room

Berlin Wall Escape Room

Let history come to life with an escape room lesson! Get students to puzzle their way through the history of the Berlin Wall, trying to stay in touch with their long lost friend Thomas on the other side of the wall. Engage students with a story website that will require them to work through a mix of text, video, jigsaw puzzles, codes and crossword puzzles to find their friend (and claim a prize?). This resource can be used as a revision lesson on the topic of the Berlin Wall or, with some internet research by the students, as a first introduction to the topic. It should take between 45 min and 2 hours, depending on age and prior knowledge. Little preparation by the teacher except for printing (if you choose the digital version of the jigsaw puzzle). As a native of Berlin I have been teaching this topic as part of my German lessons for about 10 years now. On the 3rd October, German national day, all my classes (aged 13-18) get a one lesson run through of the history of the wall and students are always fascinated by it. The topics covered here are: • the situation of Germany under the occupation of the allies after the war • the differences between East and West • why people escaped to the West • the building of the wall • what is the Stasi • what led to the fall of the wall • what happened on the 9th of November 1989 Includes: • link to dedicated story website • documents, excel and powerpoint files • puzzles • lesson plan • answers I have also included a powerpoint presentation of statistics showing the present-day differences between former East and West Germany and a collection of my favourite youtube videos on the topic.
