In school

Didactic materials are available for teachers who would like to work with the Kinderuni either inside or outside the classroom. The Kinderuni can be used in the classroom in different contexts and areas of application. We have developed didactic materials for German teachers to accompany each Kinderuni lecture. Teacher accounts enable teachers to track their students' progress in the Kinderuni. The teacher account also provides access to learning scenarios for interactive German lessons with instructions and worksheets that are free to download.
