German Festivals and Traditions is an invaluable and time-saving book that provides intercultural ideas for every month of the year. For each festival and tradition, you will find:
- Background information
- Key vocabulary
- Detailed lists of possible teaching activities
- Photocopiable sheets
- Ideas range from writing letters and investigating research projects, to creating menus and designing powerpoint presentations.
Examples of festivals and traditions include Muttertag (Mother's Day), Weihnachten (Christmas), a typical school day and Die Märchen (fairy tales).
This book includes analysis grids that show where and how the activities link to the National Curriculum Programmes of Study.
Finally, this book provides detailed plans for holding your own 'German Day' at school to raise the profile of MFL and enthuse both staff and children.
