Printable speaking games and activities for your French Pets unit (Les Animaux de Compagnie - also known as Les Animaux Domestiques). Students practise 12 domestic animals in French and linked questions and answers (As-tu un animal?). My French basics resources suit students beginning French and near beginners in KS2 (Year 4, 5, 6) and KS3 (Year 7) and equivalents. Please check the previews to see a sample. The 12 pet words featured are: cat, dog, rabbit, snake, hamster, guinea pig, horse, parrot, mouse, goldfish, turtle, lizard. PDF format. Full instructions included.
INCLUDED IN THIS RESOURCE:
This page features the 12 French pet words together with images of the animals, to support students playing the games, if required. Display on screen or print. Included with and without background colour.
FOUR IN A ROW
2 different game boards. Print and laminate. First to get four in a row - vertically, horizontally or diagonally - wins. Students roll dice, then choose a pets word from that number column and say it in French. If correct, use a dry-wipe marker to put a symbol or initial in that box.
‘I HAVE…WHO HAS?’
This loop game reviews phrases alongside some numbers. Print and laminate the 30 illustrated cards, which form a continuous loop.
AS-TU UN ANIMAL?
There are 36 game cards (18 identical pairs). Students are given a card each and must move around the room, trying to find the player with the matching card. To find this, one player asks “As-tu un animal?”. The other replies with the information on their card (e.g. “J’ai un chien et un lapin” / “J’ai deux lézards” etc) and vice versa. There are 2 versions. The first set includes French prompts for lower ability or younger students. The other is in English only.
BINGO / NOUGHTS AND CROSSES
8 different cards for a group game of Bingo (teacher or student could read out words) or Tic Tac Toe / Noughts and Crosses, with students taking it in turns to say aloud a French pets word from their card. If cards are laminated, students could write on them with a dry-wipe marker.
