frenchymms has created an activity for students to explore le monde francophone and discover the climate in 8 francophone countries:
Students first fill out a grid with the francophone countries listed and spaces to write the weather today and 5 days from now in French, using www.weather.com
After they locate the cities and find the weather, students go to google earth and look at as many cities as time allows. They are encouraged to visit at street level. Then, they make 2 observations about what they saw (land, vegetation, people, etc) in English. There is enough room to do this with 4 countries.
Designed for beginning students in 4th and 5th grade, this could be adapted for more advanced students who could do the entire thing in French.
