In a fully differentiated (by student interest) way, this activity allows students to practice:
1. the verb aller
2. the futur proche
3. the prepositions for going TO a city, a masculine country or a feminine country (à, au, en)
4. vocabulary for countries
For this activity, students choose if they want to work with famous athletes, famous musicians or famous actors/actresses. This allows students the freedom to choose something that they're interested in, hence the differentiation by INTEREST.
First, they match up the list of people to the list of places where they're from. They think it's super fun to find out/figure out where these people they know about are from!
Next, they write sentences saying that the people are going to go (futur proche) to those places where they're from.
