PERFECT GAMES FOR PRACTICING HOW TO TELL TIME IN GERMAN - O’CLOCK, HALF PAST, QUARTER TO AND QUARTER PAST THE HOUR - TWO GAMES, TWO CHALLENGES!
I HAVE, WHO HAS? is a lively & communicative whole-group language learning game. The repetitive nature of the questions and answers, supported by the visual prompt of the clock faces, makes it perfect for practicing, reinforcing & refreshing how to tell the time in GERMAN. The game has a multi-skill focus: listening, speaking & reading, with an important bonus focus on social interaction and participation. It’s perfect for pronunciation practice too.
The aim of the game is to arrange the clocks in the correct order, starting with the first
card, Es ist ein Uhr/Es ist acht Uhr, and ending with the last card Es ist viertel vor zwölf / Es ist viertel nach zwölf. Students can either create a human chain timeline, holding the cards themselves, or a card timeline, on the floor, a longish table or other flat surface.
There are two games and two challenges:
CHILLOUT CHALLENGE with the clock times in numerical order, and the Q & A
Ich habe... Hast du...?
CHAMPION CHALLENGE with the clock times in topsy-turvy order, and the Q & A
Hast du... Ja, ich habe... . This really encourages students to focus on their GERMAN clock times!
Students can identify the particular challenge by the color of the card - the font is also different, so printing is B&W is absolutely fine too. Play either as a whole-group game, or as a team game - which team can complete the challenge first? You can either play the challenges consecutively, or as a team game, swapping the challenges so that each team has a chance to play both the CHILLOUT and the CHAMPION CHALLENGE. I’ve classed the resource as suitable for Grades 4-7, but I’ve played the games successfully with both younger and older students too.
This set features analog clock times, 1-12, including midday and midnight, with o’clock, half past, a quarter to and a quarter past the hour.
