Fully animated with all answers, clear directions for students and support for teacher in Notes section of slides if required. Challenge options included within activities to extend HA. The lesson begins by asking students to note down on their whiteboards all that they know about France, and all that they know about French-speaking countries. Activity 1 - Match the French name for the country to the English translation and the correct flag, drawing a star next to the country if you think it has French as an official language. Activity 2- Match the Mystery Country's national dishes to the English translations, and the images if possible. Activity 3 - Use the French clues provided to locate the Mystery Country on the map. Activity 4 - Use the map and the images to work out where the Mystery Country might be. Activity 5 - See how many phrases can be recognised in the song lyrics for a famous band from the Mystery Country (Kana - Pas de problèmes). Think, pair, share and singalong at end. Lesson is reviewed using a Plenary Triangle, asking students to reflect on one thing that they knew already, three things that they've learned during the lesson, and one thing that they would like to know more about. The final section can be set as a research project for homework if wished. Great to fit into modules about Travel and Tourism, food, song, cultural similarities and differences, geography, or as a filler lesson before a holiday. A very popular lesson that always goes down a storm!

French Christmas Lesson - KS3 + KS4 - Vocabulary, traditions and games

French Christmas Lesson - KS3 + KS4 - Vocabulary, traditions and games

Excellent resource, perfect for KS3 and KS4 to introduce / re-cap French Christmas vocabulary (une renne, un bonhomme de neige and so on) and discuss Christmas and New Year traditions. Fully differentiated with 'Want more', 'Challenge' and 'Want support' options for students, including extension questions linking to reading comprehension and Word Bank to support lower ability learners. Fully animated with all answers and notes under each slide to give overview of each activity. A huge time saver, took a whole afternoon to make! Lesson begins by asking students to work out Christmas vocabulary. Emphasis on independent learning. A game is then played, either holding up cards or writing the correct letter of the image that corresponds to the given word on a mini-whiteboard. Reading comprehension on French Christmas traditions follows, then a game of Pictionary and a Treasure Hunt review to finish to re-cap vocabulary. Reading comprehension offers great opportunity to discuss cultural differences, including food (for example foie gras, British culinary traditions that the French wouldn't usually eat, for example mince pies) and similarities. There are two fully prepared reading texts and teacher can select which one would be more appropriate for group. Both are also included on worksheet, either for teacher to delete one as appropriate before printing, or to give both to students and allow them to select their option. The more challenging text asks students to consider traditions at New Year too, and draws upon grammatical knowledge (imperfect tense, verb synonyms, direct object pronouns). The simpler text uses simpler language, is shorter and is split into two sections to help students with understanding. Great fun for the students, they're working independently and assimilating cultural knowledge, and really enjoyable to teach!
