This is a 1 page editable Word Document. This rubric guides students in creating their own map of an imaginary town in French. (See thumbnail for example student work.) The students work in pairs and create their final town on large butcher paper. The first step, after learning vocabulary for places and things to do at each place (Ã la boulangerie, acheter une baguette), the students draw out their locations on sheets of 8.5 x 11 paper (2 per page), color them and cut them out. This enables both students to work at the same time. After they have their places cut out, they get their butcher paper. Then they glue the locations on and label one thing to do at each place. Finally, they draw and name roads to connect them! (Oh, and they name their towns and create a creature to move around the map!) Bonus activity: After the students learn to give directions in French, they can write out directions from one place to another on notecards, without giving away the final destination. Then, as a class, everyone can go around, read each set of directions and try to find their way around on each map! The students know that they get the best grade if everyone is able to find their intended final destination! (The creature is used to move like your walking on the map, which seems to help them visualize les droites et les gauches!)
