Cluedo creative project 1

Cluedo creative project 1

First lesson on a creative project I organised after completing the 'Crime au chateau' section in Expo, but it can be organised by itself. The crime is that the Headteacher has been killed !! This first part takes about 2 lessons. I place students in groups of 6/7: each will be a character (don't forget to have an inspector in each group). In lessons 1/2 we work on character description and they design and describe 1 character each. Then they make a poster as homework with a picture of their character. Could be developped to include work on clothes and accessories.
