French KS3 Cover Lesson Design your own Castle / Palace

French KS3 Cover Lesson Design your own Castle / Palace

This works best as a cover lesson. It is easy for non-specialists to follow but supports and challenges KS3 students of French well. Most effective for students with prior knowledge of connectives and opinions, but these are supplied in ppt. Could also be adapted for use in lessons by specialists. Lesson involves: Differentiated objectives and starter activity. Activity 1: team work to look up words they can use to design / describe a castle (displayed in French on ppt) in dictionaries, again, differentiated. These words include: swimming pool, knights, dragons etc. Next slide gives answers to students so they can write down whatever they were unable to find. Activity 2: differentiated translation task using castle vocabulary. Key words provided as well as higher challenge. Next slide contains answers for peer / self assessment. Main activity 3 'apply' task: Differentiated. Students design their own castle or palace. Key words and higher challenges included. Pyramid review to finish.

FRENCH CITIES - FIVE DIFFERENTIATED WORD SEARCHES WITH ANSWER KEY AND TEMPLATE

FRENCH CITIES - FIVE DIFFERENTIATED WORD SEARCHES WITH ANSWER KEY AND TEMPLATE

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS AND DISCOVERING MAJOR CITIES IN FRANCE! MOTS CACHÉS are a fabulous way of encouraging students to engage with the written word in FRENCH, refreshing and reinforcing language as they complete the grids. This set features five differentiated word searches, with each consecutive grid increasing in challenge. Students can tell in which direction the words are written by looking at the arrow key on each grid. There is an answer key for each word search, so that students can check their own or each others’ answers - or use for a little extra help if they need it! There's a reference sheet of all cities included in the searches, which you can share between small groups of students, or give one to each student to stick into their learning workbooks as an all-year-round reference. Use as starters, refreshers, plenaries, pick-me-ups or fun-time fillers at any time during the school year, as well as when you’re discussing the geography of FRANCE. For a real focus on the cities of FRANCE, and to facilitate learner independence, photocopy all the grids as a workbook, and let students simply work their way through. The workbook format is great for home learning activities too. The differentiated word search templates are a great way of getting students to apply their knowledge of FRENCH a little more practically and creatively - they create word searches either individually or in teams to share across the classroom - completing these and the pre-prepared grids against a timer works well too! Encourage students to explore FRANCE a little further, and include what they consider to be major cities that are not already featured. I've classed the resource as suitable for Grades 5-8, but it really does depend on when your students began their FRENCH and the stage they're currently working at. The resource consists of 3 non-editable files. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON VOYAGE !

End of topic project Directions - En ville

End of topic project Directions - En ville

Students spend 3-4 lessons (1h) to complete the project. They learn about a town in France and create a travel brochure in French. I used this activity with my Year 8s and they loved it. I included a reflection sheet to get them to think about the skills they used during this project. I paired them up but can be an individual activity.
