Quel temps fait il - Card Game

Quel temps fait il - Card Game

This game is a French version of the classic " I have… Who has …? " game, designed to practice talking about the weather and the names of the main cities in France. This is an easy-to-play game and a great way to practice essential language concepts with the whole class. As students match up the answers on their cards with questions on other students’ cards, they get valuable practice with vocabulary, as well as reading and listening skills. Directions: Cut out the cards along the dotted line and laminate. For bigger classes, you might want to print several copies of each set. Give out all the cards in the set to the students. It is important to use all the cards. Choose a student to go first. I usually do that by a counting rhyme. Have the selected student read the question at the bottom of the card aloud and then put the card down. The student who has the card with the answer then reads that answer aloud. This student will then read the question at the bottom of their card and put the card down. Play continues in this fashion until all of the cards have been played. The game will end with the same student who started play. Every card in the set is connected to a card before it and a card after it. To keep the game moving at a quick pace, all students need to pay attention to every question that has been asked. I tell my younger students that this is a magic game and that the magic only works if you pay attention, which is actually true. The magic happens in the end, when the question on the last card actually matches the answer on the very first card. Enjoy!

This revision resource is for French students in Year 7 who are studying for the AQA board. However, since all the boards seem to follow the same themes students studying other boards will find the resource very useful. There is vocabulary for ab initio students. There are speaking and writing exercises to help students retain the French vocabulary they have learnt during the year.
