Target Level: B1 (lower intermediate, can be made more or less difficult)

Description: The “Wegwerfgesellschaft” worksheet is designed to help students consider how they interact with the environment both consciously and subconsciously. Students consider the meaning of “umweltbewusst” and whether their country could be described as such. After watching the official music video “Lass liegen” by Alligatoah, students analyze how humor and irony can be used to comment on environmental problems. Finally, students are introduced to the word “Wegwerfgesellschaft” and asked to discuss reasons why they do or do not believe they live in such a society.

Methods: individual brainstorming, partner work, full class discussion, video
