Cluedo creative project 2

Cluedo creative project 2

Part 2 of a project developed to lead students to acting up a cluedo scene in French. Here they use their knowledge of the imperfect tense to describe what their characters were doing when the crime happened. Linked with 'Crime au chateau' in Expo but can be used independantly, as long as the students have learned the imperfect tense.The word document is a version of the lesson when I was in an IT room.

Cluedo creative project 3

Cluedo creative project 3

Last part of the project. By now students have designed their characters and their alibies. First, we analyse a scene (model of what they will write), this takes a whole lesson. Then, students have to adapt and create their own final scene of a crime mystery involving their characters. This takes a while and they can finish as h/w. They will then have to learn their part by heart, rehearse and select accessories to dress up. The final lesson is when all groups act their scenes and assess each other (see doc). I generally film them too.

SHAKESPEARE'S HAT - WORKING WITH THE CHARACTERS

SHAKESPEARE'S HAT - WORKING WITH THE CHARACTERS

This works as an introduction to Shakespeare's characters and stories for young children. It also gives older pupils the experience of working with Shakespeare&'s raw materials of character, motive and props. This makes them think about how he wrote for the stage: crucial for gaining marks in Shakespeare exams! Please read Lesson Notes to understand how it works. I have provided two of the sheets in a version with cartoons: Characters and Props. Useful if you are doing this in an MFL. The other sheets would probably need a translation on the back. Have fun!
