In the English lesson we took a vocabulary quiz. It was about the vocabulary from unit 3 in our English book. We had to explain two words,for example hunter and gatherer. After that we had to translate the vocabs and write them down.
Additionally to the vocabulary quiz,we went to the computer room and searched for information about the different Native Americans tribes and made an information sheet about the tribes.

Today we started the lesson with a new topic: ‚Native Americans‘. We got in our groups and wrote down what we will do or hopefully do about the Native Americans. At the end of the lesson we cut out feathers of colorful paper and wrote down what we wrote on the paper. Then we hung all the feathers on the wall.
Today we started with the extrawork oftwo students. They had to talk about their favorite books. Then we warmed up with the dice. After that we watched a short movie about the first Native Americans. Then we got a worksheet where we had to read a text and answer some questions.

Today we took a vocab quiz about the vocabs of Unit 3 and the irregular verbs. After this quiz, we wrote in groups on a piece of paper what we think or hope that the new unit (Native Americans) will be about. In these groups we talked about our imaginations and chose the most important things for us. After this group conversation we talked about it in class and everyone wrote her or his most important thing on a feather.
