20 French proverbs with their English equivalents and 10 engaging activities to go along with them to promote higher-order thinking skills. The proverbs are formatted as bookmarks. The English version matches up exactly to the French proverb. Copy double sided on card stock or laminate to use for prizes or birthdays. Use single-sided for matching, circumlocation (explain the English version in French!) skits and writing activities. Your students will love the bookmarks and have fun doing the activities. These are on Microsoft Word so you can change the color (they are black) or the font. You can use as a template to make more bookmarks or have students find their own "words of wisdom" to design their own bookmark.
