Product Description
"You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on my windscreen that said 'Parking Fine'." Tommy Cooper (British comedian ~ 1921 - 1984)


Everyone has heard of the Autobahn - that German superhighway with no speed limit.


Well, that's not quite true.


On certain stretches there is a speed limit and the Modern Marvels documentary on 'The Autobahn' explains that and so much more about this 'the sky's the limit' driving experience.


Included here are:

1. A 12-page introductory overhead in English on driving and getting a license in Germany to be shown before viewing

'Modern Marvels ~ The Autobahn'

so that students can better appreciate the film.

2. A handout summary for absent students in case you want to use these as culture questions on a quiz or test.


3. A Film * Fragen sheet with twenty follow-along questions in English that go with the film.

4. An answer key for the questions.


5. A vocabulary list in German and English with parts of the exterior of a car as a homework assignment.

6. A vocabulary list in German and English with parts of the interior of a car as a homework assignment.

7. A 'Mein Traumauto' project with instructions and a rubric.


8. A multiple-choice quiz on the parts of a car

and

9. An answer key for the quiz.


These can also be used as enrichment to a topic or as a substitute lesson plan (or emergency lesson plan).


Having students select from multiple choice answers allows

more time for their eyes to stay on the film and not spend it

looking down writing out answers and, thus, not miss

important moments in the film.



This is a nice introduction to this legendary superhighway and driving in Germany. (26 pages)

Some very charming videos have been done by an American teenager during his stay in Germany. Sam Walton has a delightful and refreshing way of looking at 'Life In Germany' - the name of his series.

Here's his video on 'Driving In Germany'.



And here are some tips from Rick Steves on

'Driving In Europe'.



Other delightful videos have been done by Andrew Bossom, an Englishman living in Germany. He also has a refreshing and fun way of looking at things, such as ~

'German Road Signs: An Introduction'

and

'Are Dashcams Illegal In Germany?'

'Numbering The Cars'

and

'There Is A Speed Limit'.



On the topic of cars, one of the smallest cars in the world was BMW's Isetta.

'World's Cutest Car ~ BMW Isetta'.

* OF SPECIAL NOTE *
I have created my products as Word documents because that is how I use them. They are unlocked so teachers can change vocabulary words or modify things if they wish.

If you prefer a different format for the overhead, below are some suggestions, however, the pictures may need to be inserted separately.

To Make A Slide Show In ActivInspire
If you use ActivInspire, you can save the Word document as a pdf (this is easily done with the newer versions of Word), then you can simply import the pdf to ActivInspire and have a document for that format.

To Make A Slide Show In PowerPoint
If you prefer to use the PowerPoint format, you can easily convert a Word document to a PowerPoint.

This link explains it clearly: 'Creating A PowerPoint From A Word Document.'
