Besuch des Museums – German (Secondary)

Years 7-9, Self guided program

To assist students in their exploration of the galleries at the Immigration Museum, worksheets have been prepared for beginners and intermediate levels of German. LOTE teachers should look at both worksheets and decide which will best suit their students’ ability.

The beginner’s worksheet uses simple vocabulary, with instructions in English, while the intermediate worksheet uses more advanced language. Both worksheets include an exhibition floorplan, vocabulary list, tasks focussed on themes of ‘Departure’ and ‘The Journey to Australia’, and The ‘Karl Muffler showcase’ which tells the story of a German immigrant.

Worksheets should be downloaded and photocopied prior to the visit to the museum.
