12 French Quizzes for Different Levels

Attached is a list of 12 cultural quizzes on France for KS3,4,5 students. Please check the title to find out the targeted audience. Most of them are interactive PPT so can be displayed on whiteboard and played in teams. I use these quizzes at the end of term or for starters/plenaries with great effect. Students really like it as it's covering a range of cultural topics about France ( medias, geography, history, famous people) and it's a refreshing change from the linguistic side of their FRench studies. The quizzes appear in different formats, Word or PPT mainly, and are editable. Enjoy!

Bastille Day Lesson

Bastille Day Lesson

A lesson all about Bastille Day including a range of activities. It is presented in English, so it is suitable for low-ability or younger pupils. It could also be used during form time for cultural awareness. Includes: -Presentation of facts with questions mixed in to check understanding (these could be answered on mini-whiteboards). -Listen to the Marseillaise and put the French lyrics into the right order (first verse, chorus and second verse). Then match to the English translations (flashcards are included, plus link to anthem.) -Two truths and one lie: pupils must decide which statement about France is false/myth (again mini-whiteboards would be good for this!) -Word race: use dictionaries to find translations for all the vocabulary.
