This interpretive reading activity entitled, "Vive le Carnaval" comes from the site:
I have taken the text of the article and added line numbers to the left, annotated the text with important vocabulary on the right and added 11 comprehension questions in English with specific references to line numbers. I have also added illustrations to help students establish context. I have indicated that this article is intermediate-mid because there are very specific references to the Christian origins of the holiday as well as some explanations of specific Mardi Gras traditions.
This activity is perfect for the upcoming Mardi Gras holiday or in a unit about HOLIDAYS AND CELEBRATIONS.
