Escape Room activity - French Revolution

Escape Room activity - French Revolution

This was a very low tech escape room activity. I printed off slides 1 (key words), slides 4-7 for students (2 slides per page!). The locations are on the final slide. I hid the first code cracker under a beret on an unused desk, the next clue under a guillotine by our fire exit and the third (pair of codes) under a toy crown on my classroom shelves. As I didn’t have a suitable box I could padlock, I used a cardboard wallet, holepunched it and put the padlocks through the holes on there. I used one padlock with a 3 digit code (187 - slide 8 for the questions) and a key padlock. On the wallet, I wrote in French that they had to prove to me they had complete all activities. I gave prizes to the students to open the padlock first. I did this with an able Y10 group (small class) and it took virtually a double lesson (100 minutes). Please message me if you have any questions.

French for Adults: Advanced:Part 1: Subjunctive (avoir & être) in the theme of Jeanne Louise Calment

French for Adults: Advanced:Part 1: Subjunctive (avoir & être) in the theme of Jeanne Louise Calment

Welcome to the first installment of the advanced series for adults who are studying French, published by Palmer Language Services. At this level, students are beginning to adopt a more independent approach in their studies and tend to evade from the use of their mother-tongue language influence, thus the use of extracting material from texts. This resource extensively explores the unique life and story of Jeanne Louise Calment who lived to an incredible age of 122 years and 164 days and she was only verified human being to have lived to such an age. She also outlived both her daughter and grandson by several decades. The introduction of the subjunctive, using the verbs ‘avoir’ and ‘être’ are also incorporated in this activity, in addition to using them as auxiliary verbs when the perfect subjunctive is formed. Initially, before reading the text, students should be asked in French if they have any knowledge about Jeanne Calment and if so, what do they know about her. Students should then read the text out loud and then complete the subsequent activities which follow. This resource also incorporates all four key skills such as listening, reading, writing and speaking, in addition to an array of grammar activities. The good news is that you don’t have any particular need to make any preparatory planning, prior to teaching this topic as all the material contained is self-explanatory, which will enable the students to think for themselves. The contents of this resource are as follows: The worksheet activities Sound file for the listening activity The transcript for the listening activity Happy teaching and learning!

Make your own French bleuet

Make your own French bleuet

An idea I had on how to create the French version of the Poppy - le bleuet - for Remembrance Day! I've tried to include step by step instructions - you will need: blue tissue paper, straws (or something similar), scissors and sellotape. I did adapt use and adapt another presentation on WW1 that I found on here showing key words but I can't remember the author! Hope you enjoy the activity and can make a field of bleuets with your class.
