Product Description
"If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion, and avoid the people, you might better stay home." James Michener (American author ~ 1907 - 1997)

Ever browse in a German bookstore and wonder what's so strange about those German book titles ?

Is your neighbor Frau Manfred Weber ? Nein !

What's with those windows ?

And that map of the world is definitely odd.

These 23 cultural curiosities offer your students insight into the fact that there are different ways to do what we consider to be everyday and quite usual things.

All the facts are colorfully illustrated and explained in English.

I show them on my LCD projector and ask a different student to read each point out loud to promote discussion, then I often use the facts as true/false questions on tests.

You get:

1. An overhead of 23 fascinating facts in English colorfully illustrated

2. A Notebook Check Sheet with a 'Culture' section ~ we had notebook checks every 3 to 4 weeks

3. A true/false quiz on these facts which is easy to grade in class

4. An answer key for the quiz

5. An abbreviated handout version of the facts for absent students

With international travel made so easy nowadays plus the Internet, there are some customs today that have crossed borders.

But many have not.

It's easy to develop some critical thinking skills and let your students be inspired, enlightened, and have fun discussing these sometimes quite curious cultural differences.

Everything is ready-to-use to make your job easy. (34 pages)

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

'Culture Shock: What To Expect From It'.

'Ten Things About Germany'.

Some more very charming videos have been done by an American teenager, Sam Walton, while he lived in Germany. His series 'Life In Germany' is done in short segments. His outlook is also refreshing.

Here's the one on 'Doors, Windows, and Rolladen'.

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, you may have to insert the pictures by hand.

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.'
