First of all, a Merry Christmas to one and all!

Thirdly, and to make up for the lack of activities, here is A Christmas Schmorgesborg for you all (I also know it's a little late, but better late than never, right?)
A powerpoint game where students help Santa to deliver a present.
Simply ask your students questions and, if they are correct they can press the spacebar and move the present that little bit further.
