This is a project that I used for my level 2 French learners with great success! I required that students present the project orally, but it could easily be adapted for a written grade.
In this project, students imagine that they have welcomed a French penpal to the USA. They must show off all the wonderful things they did with their penpal, and their impressions of the USA, all using the passe compose.
The open-ended format of the project worked very well in my classes. The students created journal pages, scrapbook pages, snapchat stories, and mock text messages.
Some even had their friends stand in as their "penpals" in photos for the project.
