Overview:

This novice mid to novice high German activity leads students through an authentic website as they explore topics important to German families. Vocabulary covered in this activity includes gift giving, celebrations, leisure activities, and more. As students search this site, they are guided by an activity guide that asks them to first identify key vocabulary, followed by individual exploration throughout the site to look at topics of personal interest. After exploring on their own for a bit, students are directed to specific sections of the site where they will use their interpretive reading skills to identify and explore perspectives behind family celebrations.
