Spin the wheel with German nouns and articles!
This is a simple game for UKS2 or KS3 German language learners who are exploring the relationship between articles and cases in German.
All you need are pictures of nouns you are practising e.g foods and a "Spinning Wheel" made of card - see my diagram- with an arrow that can move and is fixed to the centre of the circle.
Divide you class into differentiated ability teams of 6 children
Place a picture of a noun or place the object itself in the centre of the Spinning Wheel Circle.
With the arrow at 12 o'clock invite a member of a team to say the noun for the class (1 point)
Can the team decide and say the definite article that goes with the noun? (1 point)
Turn the arrow to one of the other written phrases.Can the team now say the noun after the word or phrase with an accurate definite artcile in the correct case? ( 2 points)
Can a member of the team explain why they have used this definite article e.g it is how you say it after "ich habe..." (1 point)
They can double the score if they can say what "case" they have used- Accusative or Dative
