Green Academy- A new digital offer for your German class
This fall, the #Grüne Akademie is hitching a ride with the Digital WanderbUS to travel all across the USA! Your students (ages 8-14) can come along, too, taking part in monthly online lectures about nature, humanity, and technology!
Starting at the end of October 2020, Christoph Biemann, the star of the German children's TV show, "Die Sendung mit der Maus," will kick off the lecture series with experiments that children (ages 8-11) can do at home on their own. In November Dr. Ana Laura Edelhoff will help students (ages 11-14) to thoughtfully consider the questions that shape our world.
Language level: A1-A2.
Alongside the lectures, the Goethe Institute will be providing materials for use in the online classroom.
