Final projects and review
to finish and present final projects; review material from previous lessons
Today is completely devoted to reviewing the previous material, finishing the final projects and presenting them. You should plan to play games or sing songs that review the vocabulary. Keep things fun and active. Use this day not so much to teach the students something new or to make sure they learn something they were weak on, but to end the unit on a positive note. Play games that your class seemed to enjoy or to review topics that they especially enjoyed.
Hopefully, they will be able to display their projects on a bulletin board somewhere around school (the teacher will decide and handle this).
Hobbies chain (approx. 10 min) Each student picks an activity s/he enjoys and learns the German sentence that describes it. After each student tells his/her favorite activity, the entire class repeats the German sentence and any preceding ones. The chorus builds as each student adds his/her sentence.
