I was sick this weekend too–my son had a boy scout camping activity that I chaperoned and it rained the entire weekend. Came home with a sinus headache, cold, the works. That and I had to eat chili dogs.
So feeling totally plowed this Monday morning, I was thrilled to see that I wanted to cover the word “passt” which means “fits” or “matches.” Why thrilled? Because one of my former students sent me a link to this gem:
I took the pictures out of this and made a Google Docs PowerPoint out of it. Feel free to make a copy and switch the titles to your language.
So after talking about weekends and learning the German for “Part” and “fits/matches”, we looked through the pictures and discussed what parts of their faces matched. “The eyes match, but the lips don’t match.” Sometimes we’d discuss this as a class, sometimes the partners had to do it on their own. Really fascinating pictures, and we got a ton of reps just discussing them and laughing at them.
So, if you need to have an easy lesson for a day, show some pictures, discuss them and have fun. Almost makes it worth having to eat the chili dogs. Almost.
