Last year I found some videos on How German Sounds Compared to Other Languages which I used as an attention grabber when we started this topic. What I'm hoping to do next year is capitalize on this common meme:
I found a couple examples to show students (look for ones like "ich liebe dich," "Aschenputtel," "Staatsangehörigkeit," and "Naturwissenschaften"). I plan to have students create their own. I made a template for them where they just have to insert the different words.
If you're interested in a copy, it's available for free on TPT.
Hopefully this will be a fun, beginning of the year activity that not only helps them review German (and maybe learn a few new words!) but also get them to be a little more culturally savvy :)
