The is a project for the end of a first year French class. I usually give students 2-3 days to work on their book, and then spend part of a day presenting them.
This is a great little project when you have 3-4 days at the end of the year and you want students to review many of the first year topics. I have included a checklist (with examples in French) for the following topics:
-mon/ma meilleur(e) ami(e)
-les vacances d'été
For the second option students can choose to write a creative story with illustrations. I usually allow them to work with a partner if they choose this option.
