Mes vacances et ma passion-Les Alpes

Mes vacances et ma passion-Les Alpes

I tried to select a nice topic and theme to teach and revise various skills and grammatical aspects . It links to Expo3 ( la Normandie ) rouge with the discovery of an area but I jaust added more on this so students get to compare areas and see how varied France is. I will add more through a different power point and add worksheets , this is taking ages .... hope it helps. I used the interactive quiz with the gap fill as a little starter and introduction about the Alps before showing the Power Point.

French Easter Vocabulary, Games and Traditions - KS3 + KS4

French Easter Vocabulary, Games and Traditions - KS3 + KS4

Excellent lesson, introducing / re-capping French Easter vocabulary and traditions. Fully animated and very attractively presented. Lesson is fully differentiated with 'Challenge' and 'Want support' options for learners as appropriate. LA and HA worksheets included within bundle. All answers provided and support for teacher in 'Notes' section of each slide.Emphasis on fun, independent learning. Students are asked to match French Easter vocabulary to the English equivalents to begin, then repeat the words after the teacher (create a team points game from this activity if you wish with actions). Students are then asked to match a phrase to the correct image, using letter cards or by writing a letter on a whiteboard. A reading text then follows, with questions linked to Easter celebrations and traditions in France. At the end of the lesson, a Pictionary slide is set up to review learning, and also an Easter Egg Hunt game, whereby if students answer questions correctly, they can choose a square to hunt for 15 golden eggs. Took four hours to make! A huge time saver!

Prejudices in France (based on the film "Qu'est-ce qu'on a fait à Bon Dieu?")

Prejudices in France (based on the film "Qu'est-ce qu'on a fait à Bon Dieu?")

The resources will be useful for the IB topics like Immigration, Customs and Traditions. The main objective is to study some prejudices existing today on the example of a comedy film "Qu'est-ce qu'on a fait à Bon Dieu?". The resource pack includes two resources, exercises based on the trailer and after film activities. Trailer-based exercises can help to introduce the issue of national prejudices and after-film activities (quiz and article about the film) will help students to understand this issue.
