In “Christmas in France - Pepper et les Treize Desserts or Pepper is Stuffed" Pepper helps students learn how Christmas is celebrated in France with French vocabulary for the holiday. Pepper covers from Advent four Sundays before Christmas, the arrival of le Père Noël (Santa/Father Christmas) and his assistant le Père Fouettard (Whipping Father), enjoying thirteen desserts on Christmas Eve and what they mean, to eating la galette des Rois (Kings' puff pastry cake) on January 6.

There is a detailed ten-page 'newspaper' for older students, simpler eight-page booklets for younger students made out of one sheet of paper, and sheets for the youngest students to use. The PowerPoint is an interactive presentation that allows students to provide answers before they are shown on the next slide. Notes are included in the PowerPoint providing all the details from the booklets and newspaper, but can be ignored during the slide presentation for a simpler, stream-lined overview using only the headlines on the individual slides. Therefore this package can be used for those in Pre-K to Grade 10 or higher (or ages 3 to 15 or higher). Please click on the preview for more details. The documents are in PDF, PowerPoint and Word so you can edit them.
Pepper has also included two quizzes, vocabulary practice, writing practice, and two activities associated with the holidays, as shown in the preview. Finally, a bonus four-page reference document in English of the relevant verses from the Bible on the birth of Christ is included.
