German Culture Project Ideas

Instructor: Maria Airth

Maria has a Doctorate of Education and over 15 years of experience teaching psychology and math related courses at the university level.

This asset offers summative projects on German culture. The projects are designed to be completed after your unit on German culture and can be assigned as group or individual work.

German Culture Projects

When learning something new and unfamiliar, often students are able to memorize a set of information long enough for a test, but not truly internalize that information for long-term acquisition. A great way to increase processing and retention for new concepts, like foreign cultures, is to assign cumulative projects in order to have students work deeply with the concepts. The projects offered in this asset are designed to assist your middle school students to fully process and retain the knowledge they have gained on German culture.

New and Old

This project encourages your students to focus on how Germany has changed over time. Your students will choose a time period from Germany's past and compare it to current Germany.


  • List of questions to be answered might include:
    • What cultural aspects of society then are similar to current day Germany?
    • What are some direct opposite aspects of society in these two time periods?
  • Research materials
