8th Grade München Mini-Projekte

Start here:

Moodle Keys:

GHMS – deutsch8ghms

AMS – deutsch8ams


This is the English version of the official munich website and it will contain much of the information you will probably need to do your research. If you wish to explore the German version of the site, by all means do so! But the purpose of this assignment is for you to share information about a cultural or historical topic in Munich that interests you. You are required to introduce your topic in German using the following (for example)

  • Mein Thema ist _____________________. (whatever the topic is)
  • Give the location of the attraction using the German we have been practicing in class and tell how old it is in German, and at least one other small fact about it in German.
  • The rest of your presentation will be in English.

Some ideas for things to research if you haven’t selected a topic yet:

  • Oktoberfest
  • BMW
  • The Wittelsbach Dynasty
  • Münchener Zoo
  • History of the city crest (Stadtwappe)
  • Die Pest (the plague) Many sights in Munich memorialize this tragic occurence.
  • Allianz Arena (futuristic new soccer stadium built for the World Cup 2006)

Requirements: You must create a Powerpoint or other visual aide for your 3 minute presentation. But today should be primarily for RESEARCH! I want to see your information before you start perfecting your slide transitions.
