This activity asks students four questions related to food and drink in French. They must answer the question by writing a complete sentence and then draw an image that corresponds to the content of their response.

Choose whichever you prefer! Each version has five different iterations with varying questions, so you can have students select which questions they would like to answer or you may choose the version that has questions that you like best.
