French Pets Worksheets and Puzzles

Worksheets and puzzles for your French Pets unit (Les Animaux de Compagnie - also known as Les Animaux Domestiques). These printable writing activities for reviewing domestic animals vocabulary and phrases will be enough for multiple lessons and homework: 2 worksheets, a crossword and a word search. Both puzzles and one of the worksheets come in 2 differentiated versions and further differentiation is provided by a supporting vocabulary page. My French basics resources suit students beginning French and near beginners in KS2 (Year 4, 5, 6) and KS3 (Year 7) and equivalents. PDF format. Please check the preview to see if they will suit your students.

These resources focus on key French pet words such as cat, dog, rabbit, snake, hamster, guinea pig, horse, parrot, bird, mouse, goldfish, fish, turtle, lizard. Students practise the key questions and answers about pets (pet type, name, colour and age). Includes missing letter tasks, unscrambling words, word matching, basic reading comprehension and translation tasks. Alternative version of Worksheet 2 has amendments to word ‘colour’ (‘color’) for US teachers.

SAVE by purchasing as part of my French Pets BUNDLE, which also contains a French Pets Presentation and French Pets Games. All 3 resources focus on the same core vocabulary.
