Make your own French bleuet

Make your own French bleuet

An idea I had on how to create the French version of the Poppy - le bleuet - for Remembrance Day! I've tried to include step by step instructions - you will need: blue tissue paper, straws (or something similar), scissors and sellotape. I did adapt use and adapt another presentation on WW1 that I found on here showing key words but I can't remember the author! Hope you enjoy the activity and can make a field of bleuets with your class.

Joyeux Noel: reading around the classroom

Joyeux Noel: reading around the classroom

Here is an activity for students to learn more about how Christmas is celebrated in France. The texts are printed out and display around the classroom. The students then get a certain amount of time to walk around the classroom and read the different texts, completing their answers sheets. I have used a resource found on TES and amended it. There is also the answer sheets. Let me know if you found it useful :)

Spot Santa: Christmas Market in Montreux, Switzerland- Marché de Noël

This is a powerpoint presentation with 58 slides, taking on a visit around the famous Montreux Christmas Market, one of the biggest one in Europe. Each slide got a clear photo taken at a time when it was not crowded by people so you can really get a taste of this Christmas market. Each slide also has a simple sentence describing the photo. Finally, to make sure your students get a little bit extra fun, there are 58 tiny Santas hidden (one on each slide) for them to spot.

French - Christmas facts & fun

This PPT introduces some facts about Christmas in France and can be used in conjunction with the Christmas wordsearch, where a lot of the vocab used is introduced. For the wordsearch, students use a school French dictionary to look up the English Christmas words and find the French words in the grid. The PPT starts by introducing and then practising some facts about Christmas in France, followed by a video of a Christmas market in Mulhouse, Alsace. There is then a Connect 4 game, practising the vocab and facts, followed by an Advent Calendar team game. Instructions are in the notes section of the PPT.
