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.

Fully animated with all answers, clear directions for students and support for teacher in Notes section of slides if required. Challenge options included within activities to extend HA. The lesson begins by asking students to note down on their whiteboards all that they know about France, and all that they know about French-speaking countries. Activity 1 - Match the French name for the country to the English translation and the correct flag, drawing a star next to the country if you think it has French as an official language. Activity 2- Match the Mystery Country's national dishes to the English translations, and the images if possible. Activity 3 - Use the French clues provided to locate the Mystery Country on the map. Activity 4 - Use the map and the images to work out where the Mystery Country might be. Activity 5 - See how many phrases can be recognised in the song lyrics for a famous band from the Mystery Country (Kana - Pas de problèmes). Think, pair, share and singalong at end. Lesson is reviewed using a Plenary Triangle, asking students to reflect on one thing that they knew already, three things that they've learned during the lesson, and one thing that they would like to know more about. The final section can be set as a research project for homework if wished. Great to fit into modules about Travel and Tourism, food, song, cultural similarities and differences, geography, or as a filler lesson before a holiday. A very popular lesson that always goes down a storm!

Crise d'identité (Un jeu inspiré par Hedbanz®)

This activity is designed to motivate your students to ask questions in French.

Les vacances

Les vacances

This is an old song I use to sing with my young students years ago- found it somewhere, in an old school. I have made an attractive PPT for it, so it can be easily translated into English. The song plays in the background and the slides move automatically . At the end there is a backing with lyrics, so the pupils can join in when confident enough. The activity sheet includes some simple and funny exercises, like creating a passport.
