This resource is for French students from Year 7 to Year 11. It tells students about Mardi Gras and why people celebrate it and the events leading up to Mardi Gras. It also tells students what is eaten during this period and why. There is also a list of Mardi Gras vocabulary. It is an interesting piece of information. People celebrate Mardi Gras and they do not know why. Hopefully students will understand why and appreciate the reasons why there is a Mardi Gras.
