The “Life Cycle of a Frog – French” unit comes with the following:
• unit summary with suggested uses
• dyslexia-friendly PowerPoint (with audio) introducing the four stages of a frog, the word for “becomes” and simple sentences outlining the life cycle of a frog
• clear vocabulary list
• two sets of high-quality labelled photo flashcards (one with the four stages, the other set with simple sentences)
• cutting, sticking and colouring worksheet of the four stages of a frog
• make your own lily pad craft activity
• life cycle of a frog matching cards
• life cycle of a frog booklet
1. Use the PowerPoint to introduce the life cycle and check for comprehension (slide 3). Use slides 4-7 to introduce the four stages of the life cycle in French. Using slide 8, see if pupils can guess the meaning of “devient”. If the class is coping well, use slides 9-13 to introduce the four stages in sentences. *Make sure you have the “notes” section visible for additional vocabulary support if you need it.
2. Slide 14 onwards can be used as an identification game. Show the class the photos and see if they can identify in French which part of the life cycle is shown.
3. Photo flashcards can be used as part of a wall display or as a stimulus for an art-based project for pupils to create their own images.
4. Use the cutting, sticking and colouring worksheet to check for comprehension of the order of the life cycle.
5. Matching cards are a more supported comprehension activity as each part of the life cycle has a unique edge to help with matching.
6. Both the lily pad craft activity and the frog booklet can be used to create beautiful items to be used as part of a display to exhibit what the class has been doing.
