Claim the parcel translation game Notre Planete New GCSE Studio AQA

Claim the parcel translation game Notre Planete New GCSE Studio AQA

Claim the parcel translation game Activity for revising different verb tenses and topics from new GCSE AQA books. You have a table with different verbs tenses/sentences and project it on your interactive whiteboard/wall. In groups of 2 (max 3) they write the answer in French to one of the parcels/boxes on their mini white boards, come to you at the front of the class (you check) and if they have the answer correct they can claim the parcel/box. You write their names/team name on a post it notes and stick it over the parcel/box on the interactive whiteboard. Then, no one can do this parcel/box anymore. The winner is the group to have most parcels/boxes claimed at the end. Works well as end of module revision or translation practice. Don't forget to feedback!

Environment Guided Translation Picture Puzzle

Environment Guided Translation Picture Puzzle

A guided translation on the topic of the environment, where if pupils pick the correct option for each word, a picture emerges. The activity incentivizes accurate translation - pick the wrong word, you don't get the finished picture! For each word to be translated, there are options in French (a, b, c etc). These letters correspond to different colours to be used to colour in a square on the grid. At the end, the whole translation can be written out as a paragraph. Pupils can then set their own picture puzzle for a friend using the paragraph as a model. The translation is about protecting unicorns, so it is easily adapted to write about other animals hunted for their horns such as elephants, rhinos or narwhal. This can be a useful writing exercise if you are working on the topic of the environment. It can also be set as a stand-alone activity as pupils can often deduce the correct answer even if it is unfamiliar, because they can eliminate the incorrect alternatives. The attached image gives an idea of how translating the text produces the image of a giraffe eating leaves from a tree.
